2021 University Mental Health Day

University Mental Health Day Banner, Thursday 4th March 2021

Thursday 4th March 2021 marks University Mental Health Day, bringing together the university community to make mental health a university-wide priority and create ongoing year-round change to the future of student mental health. We understand that this year looks different and we can't be together physically, but this won't stop us from coming together to create change virtually. Now more than ever it's important to get the nation talking about student mental health. Read on to find out how to get involved!

  • The Positive Peers will be opening up lots of conversations about student mental health and wellbeing on their Instagram. If you’d like to meet the Positive Peers, you can sign up to have a one-to-one chat here or attend one of their events, such as Positive Minds for students who are feeling low or Productive Pomodoro for students who want a little help to find motivation.
  • Black Students Talk is running a University Mental Health Day special meet-up session at 3 pm. The link and information can be found on their website.
  • King’s Sport have organised a week of events for the King’s Community with prizes throughout the week. Check them all out here. 
  • If you live in King’s Residences, there will be a number of events going on throughout the week that you can find on their Instagram.

Don’t forget that the Wellbeing Hub is always available to boost your wellbeing with events, activities, and resources all year long for you to thrive – way beyond University Mental Health Day!
