Mind Your Mood is the student-led mental health campaign at Ulster University.
Mind Your Mood aims to give students the opportunity to understand mental health issues, promote ways to improve your mental health and break down the stigma surrounding mental health among students.
Mental health affects how we function in everyday life, so it is important. Just like we need to look after our physical health, we need to look after our mental health. We need to actively take care of ourselves.
The majority of people are aware of the implications of ignoring their physical health, however, the consequences of ignoring our mental health can be just as serious, yet it is something we tend to ignore.
Mind your Mood plans to tackle this by partnering with a range of charities and individual speakers to provide educational workshops, as well as running events and health fairs to promote awareness.
The Mind Your Mood Award aspires to educate and equip students to tackle the stigma in their own friend groups, societies, courses and campus.
If you would like to get involved, or have any suggestions for workshops and events, we would love to hear from you. You can send us an email at email@example.com
My name is Sean, I am a Business Studies student currently on placement as this year's Mind Your Mood Coordinator in the Belfast Campus for 2022/23.
As a student I know how difficult it is to get settled into university life by constantly keeping on top of studies as well as enjoying yourself too. Mind Your Mood is a student-led initiative, so we are here to help the students and want students to feel comfortable to approach us as we understand the pressure students face nowadays.
It's exciting times for us all moving into a new campus and with the Covid restrictions lifted we are ensuring that everything will be in person as events have been online for too long now. We will be educating students about the importance of mental health in today's society through workshops, training and events that all students can get involved in.
I'll be leading the Mind Your Mood Ambassador scheme this year planning a lot of activities and surprises ahead for September onwards - stay tuned.
Excited to see you all!
