Mental Health Awareness Week 2015

Here at The Student Housing Company, we like to make sure all of our students are taken care of. That means comfy beds, safe and secure flats, lots of opportunities to make friends, and if you need anything we’re here 24 hours a day. To take it one step further, all week we are taking part in Mental Health Awareness week across our residences. One in six of us struggle with mental health problems in the UK at any one time. Lesser known mental health issues can include; loneliness, insomnia, anger, fear, alcohol abuse and problems with friendships. To raise awareness and combat stigma, this year The Mental Health Foundation is promoting the theme Mindfulness.

‘Mindfulness is a mind-body approach to wellbeing, a way of dealing with thoughts and feelings by engaging with the present moment. People all over the world come together and celebrate our annual week-long awareness campaign’ – The Mental Health Foundation.

So to show our support across the board, here are some of the extra things we’re doing this week:

At our Canal Point residence in Edinburgh we’re hosting 3 events in conjunction with Edinburgh Nightline & the mental health charity, Mind. We’re also having a bubble wrap de-stress day! Make sure you get involved before our team have all the fun, Stuart you know we’re talking about you.

Abacus, our residence in Brighton, is hosting a tea, cake and chat afternoon in the common room on Wednesday. We’d love to see loads of you there; we’ve bought enough cake to stock a supermarket bakery so we’ll need your help or you’ll be rolling us back to reception.

In Huddersfield at The Castings we’ve got a film night on Tuesday to help you wind down from all that revision (bring your duvet & a pillow)! Plus on Friday we’re going to be having a canine morning, between 9am and 12pm, so pop down for a stress relieving, fluffy cuddle!

That’s only a snippet so keep an eye on our social media feeds for all the latest event info across our residences. To find out more about other events in your area that the Mental Health Foundation are supporting all week, check out their interactive map.

As well as this we’ll be encouraging all of you to sign the Time to Change pledge, run by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, to help end discrimination against people who experience mental health problems. We signed it, and it would be great if you could to.

If you are worried that you, or someone you know, might be experiencing mental health problems, then the mental health foundation have a page on their website full of direct numbers you can ring, so you don’t have to go it alone.
