World Mental Health Day 2018

World Mental Health day takes place on 10th October each year. To celebrate World Mental Health Day this year, come along to the Enabling Services waiting area to decorate (and eat!) a cupcake. Pop down for your opportunity to have a chat with one of our Enabling Services and Student Life advisors about the range of support available to you.

The theme for this year's World Mental Health Day is Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World.

Whilst you are at University, you might experience a number of changes in your life. If you would like support with these changes, visit the Student Support drop-in sessions to speak to a trained advisor.

If you can't attend a drop-in session, you can also contact Enabling Service by email enable@soton.ac.uk, call us on +44(0)23 8059 7726 or access our Live Chat between 2pm and 4pm. Alternatively, Student Life are available 24/7 to support you.

The Students' Union run a number of initiatives around mental health throughout the year, to support your mental health, as well as equip you with the skills to enable you to offer support to those around you.

Look After Your Mate is a two hour training session developed by the leading mental health charity Student Minds. It provides basic skills to help students support their friends. Keep an eye on the SUSU website for details of how to sign up and the dates for the next session.
