Students Take Part In Mental Health Awareness

Holy Cross College and University Centre recently supported Mental Health Awareness Week which took place in May.
Many activities were arranged throughout the week to raise awareness around the issues raised for both students and staff.

These included Holy Cross Library offering plants so students had the opportunity to ‘look after a plant, look after yourself, writing empowering messages on the mirrors within Holy Cross and a ‘Get out into Nature’ photo competition. Students and staff also had the opportunity to purchase a green ribbon or badge in aid of the Mental Health Foundation who hosted the event.

A step challenge saw students and staff participating walking outside to show how it could boost mental health and was a culmination of a campaign that ran throughout lockdown on social media with videos and links to support those in need at
the college.

Second year leaver Caroline Dunbar told Your Local BURY Magazine “The Student Voice group that joined in many of the activities during the week, understood how the students have struggled during this unprecedented time and wanted to make sure everyone could see how they could promote positive mental health.”
