Sheffield students fight mental illness

Have your say

SHEFFIELD Hallam University will raise awareness of mental health issues with a day of activities.

The event, which hopes to challenge the stigma associated with mental illness, forms part of national University Mental Health Day on February 20.

Annie Kemball, senior wellbeing advisor said: “One in four people will experience a mental health problem during the year, so it’s important for students to have access to advice and support.”

The university is calling on students to wear green - the official colour of the campaign - to show their support.

Sessions will include art activities, workshops, a treasure hunt and a pub quiz.
