The sessions aim to raise awareness of mental health subjects including stigma and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Alongside this, the sessions also aim to normalise mental health conversations, encouraging students to talk about their stressors and the strategies they use to cope. Throughout the day, TEMA students took part in workshops and activities which covered a wide-range of subjects including, a definition of mental health and the real-world application, signs and symptoms of struggling, and how we can use our coping strategies when we aren’t feeling 100%.
