Let the “heart” take a breath – What is Mental Health Day? How to Establish a Campus that is More Friendly, and Supportive of Mental Health

2023-12-11

Recently, universities and colleges have been increasingly recognizing the importance of addressing students’ mental and psychological well-being. They are gradually implementing initiatives to promote mental health days, with the expectation that these days will allow students to focus on their emotional well-being. The goal is to help them understand how to alleviate emotional or psychological stress and to encourage educators and school administrators to acknowledge students’ mental health status. Interventions are planned at appropriate times to assist students with identified needs, aiding them in problem-solving and adapting to challenging situations.

When you encounter a situation where a student requests a mental health day, how should you handle it? We invite you to join us for a discussion on how we can collectively create a campus that is more friendly, inclusive, and supportive of mental health.
