Tuesday, 7 May 2024

The week commencing 13 May is Mental Health Awareness Week and is an annual campaign Beds SU has always been passionate in supporting. From starting conversations to offering you opportunities to come together with fellow students.

This year's theme is 'Movement: Moving More for our Mental Health'. To bring this theme to life we will be holding a series of events in Luton. All events are FREE to attend, and open to students from all campuses, so please come on over if you can.

To kick start the week we will be hosting a Guided Meditation session on Monday 13 May, Metro Bar and Kitchen 14:00 - 16:00 in the Metro. Come dressed in something comfortable and join us for a recorded meditation session. Floor mats will be provided. Read more about how guided meditation can improve your mental health.

On Wednesday 15 May 14:00 - 16:00, your Co-Vice President, Amina Awal will be hosting a gentle 20 minute walk followed by picnic. If you would like to come and join fellow students, chat to some members of the support team and enjoy a chance to relax then this is for you! 

The meeting point is the Metro Bar and Kitchen, where we will have t-shirts for you to decorate. We have a capacity of 30 for this event so please register your interest by 12:00 on Wednesday 8 May.

Thursday 16 May, Metro -14:00 - 17:00 - Relax and Paint. There is a lot of research into the benefits of painting and drawing so we're delighted to bring back one of our popular events to round-off our Mental Health Week activities. Paper and materials will be provided. Read more about how painting can help you relax

Teams and services from across the University will also be holding a variety of activities. Keep an eye on your MyBedsLife app for more details.

Please also remember, if you or someone close to you needs support, we have trained individuals on hand to support you.
