Students’ mental health day 2021 is here again for the Spring 2021! The theme this year is communality and right for help. The day will be Thursday 22 April, and the campaign will run for two weeks, from 12 to 23 April 2020. The goal is to provoke conversations about students’ mental health and to invite everyone to support the cause of mental wellbeing.

#HelpWorthy -social media challenge

We all need help at some point in our lives. You are #HelpWorthy when ever feeling the need of help and support from others.

Participate in the Students’ Mental Health Day campaign on 12-23 April by sharing your own thoughts and experiences on seeking help. Encourage your friends to do so too. By being open you also give others a much-needed space to feel #HelpWorthy.

Together we can tear down both our inner and societal barriers that stand in the way of getting help!
