Well-being Festival celebrates World Mental Health DayWednesday 11 October 2017
Belly dancing, a henna artist and a special visit from Merseyside Dogs Home were just some of the treats in store at a special Well-being Festival held at Hope.
Staff and students were invited to take part in a host of events held across both the Hope Park and Creative Campuses to celebrate World Mental Health Day.
The theme for this year’s event was the five ways to well-being: connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give.
Josie Davies, Mental Health and Well-being Adviser, said: “The event was popular and well attended by both staff and students. It helped to raise awareness of the importance of mental well-being, as well as being fun and inspiring!"
A host of external agencies visited the University, to deliver an eclectic mix of sessions, including a Katumba drumming workshop, laughter yoga, a staff mindfulness session, a knit and natter group, Look after your mate training, and cuddles with dogs from Merseyside Dogs Home.
