Mental Health conditions can vary from homesickness, loneliness, depression, and stress amongst other issues. It is important to know that anyone and everyone can be affected.  If you or a friend would like to talk about mental health, there are many avenues available from the Union and the University. It’s important to remember that you are not alone. You can talk about mental health.

This year, we’re focussing on the importance of talking openly about mental health when it comes to tackling stigma and supporting your friends or family. Throughout the week they’ll be the following events happening in the Students’ Union and don’t forget to check out #MindYourHeadCSU.
