Open Your Mind - Update
 
 
 
A group of students from Queen’s University Belfast has been volunteering with the Open Your Mind project since October 2010. As part of this role students receive training in a number of areas such as mental health awareness, stress management and media training.
 
The students completed their media training in North West Regional College. This training will help them with their campaign events which are set to take place in Queen’s University in April 2011.
 
Open Your Mind is a five-year mental health awareness project for students across Northern Ireland. The project is a partnership project between NUS-USI and MindWise and is kindly funded by the Big Lottery. Each year students from different colleges and universities come together to organise campaigns to help
 
  • raise awareness of mental health problems among the student body;
  • decrease the stigma and discrimination associated with mental health problems and
  • signpost students to relevant support within their campus and local community".
