World Mental Health Day 2020

Hello everyone,

Happy World Mental Health Day!

Mental health is incredibly important at any time, but especially right now because of the pandemic and the effects it is having on our lives. Some people are coping well with all of the restrictions, uncertainty, and anxiety, but many of us are feeling the strain this is putting on our wellbeing. If you're struggling then please remember you're not alone - there are others who feel the same as you, and there are always people you can turn to.

It's so important for mental health to be an open conversation, and so here at Queen Mary Students' Union we've put together some videos on our Instagram of students talking about mental health and ways to improve your wellbeing. Huge thank you to our Part Time Officers Beatrix, Ellora and Fares for recording videos and sharing resources. If you're comfortable to talk about your own experiences too then feel free to share something in the comments, or take the conversation offline and talk to a loved one about mental health, both yours and theirs.

We've also put together some resources that you might find helpful - these range from information and training to practical support services. Take a look and please access any that you think might help you. If you ever have any questions or aren't sure where to go for support, please reach out to us here at the Students' Union.

Wishing you all health and happiness on World Mental Health Day (and every other day of the year),

Jack Juckes

Vice President Welfare
