USSU Help Centre Presents – Mental Health Week: Five Days, Five Speakers

Mental Health Week: Five Days, Five Speakers is back with some new topics! February 22-26

Mental health can often be a difficult and broad topic. Many factors can affect your mental health. Often you may not feel like there are any reasons. You are not crazy, or lazy, or spoiled for feeling mentally unwell. Your mental health isn’t insignificant just because someone has it worse than you. Although mental health is still highly stigmatized, we want you to know it is okay to get help and it is okay to talk about it. Join us for mental health week to learn about different aspects of mental health. Each day we will cover a different theme of mental health, and each day we will have a speaker surrounding that topic! Stay updated on all the information on our Help Centre page

or our Instagram @USSUHelpCentre.
