Mind Your Mood - Galleries
With over £100,00 raised over the last three years for Mind Your Mood, our alumni, staff and students have been busy with all their fundraising activities. Here are photos over the years of just some of this activity.

Belfast Campus Abseil 2019
This unique challenge allowed participants to abseil 26 metres off Ulster University’s Belfast campus.
Belfast Marathon 2018
On 7th May over 160 students, staff, alumni and friends donned their Mind Your Mood running tops and took to the streets of Belfast to raise funds in support of our students’ mental health.
We had a mixture of relay teams, walkers, fun runners as well as full marathon runners! It was a great day out and we all enjoyed dissecting our efforts at a post run event in the city.
A special mention should go to Noel from Santander Universities who also ran the Virgin London Marathon in aid of Mind Your Mood and then the Newry marathon also!
Under the leadership of two staff members, Paul Quinn and Martin McGinn, a group of 25 cyclists, made up of students, fellow staff, graduates and friends, left the Magee campus early on 4th May on the second 4 campus cycle.
They travelled via Coleraine, Jordanstown and finished in Belfast in the afternoon to a warm welcome.
Thank you to the group of players (and non-players) who took part in the inaugural Mind Your Mood football tournament at Jordanstown.
A great day was had by all and a special thank you must go to all the Santander University staff who took part in supporting this fund day of fundraising.
Summary of how all funds will be used
Our colleagues in Student Support have been overwhelmed with the response to the fundraising campaign to support the Mind Your Mood programme.
Every extra penny means we can build on the huge success of the programme in 2017.
There is always more we can do to ensure we reach those students most in need – whether it is simply, but crucially, raising awareness and destigmatising mental health issues, building resilience or providing interventions at all stages of mental illness.
More funds means more activity to support our students.
