What is it:
Mental Health Matters is a campaign run by the SU Welfare Officer that looks at the importance of mental health and wellbeing within different cohorts of students at UoG. This week-long online campaign will be running from Monday 26th April- Friday 30th April and will include themed days on what support, resources and events are available for these students, as well as Instagram lives with various university staff and organisations. The campaign is focusing on LGBTQ+, Black Asian Minority Ethnic Plus, International, Postgraduate, Mature, and disabled students, as well as the general student body.
The Experience Officers, a member of the Equality Diversity and Inclusion team and Asha will be leading on their specific days, and will be providing useful tips, resources, and suggestions for students to engage with.
How can you get involved?
You can follow the online campaign on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter as well as on the SU website, and can use the information to explore more into the different cohorts of students at the university, and what to do to help these students feel more included. The useful tips may be things that students don't already know or might encourage students to explore something new that they find out from the campaign.
You can also get involved by taking away the information and research ways in which they can further educate themselves and make a difference to these student communities by improving the inclusivity at UoG.
