Mind Your Mood

Mind Your Mood is the student-led mental health campaign. It is ran by students, for students, to help raise awareness of mental health issues that affect students at Queen's, and in wider society. It seeks to remove the stigma attached to discussing mental health, encourage students to practice self-care, build resilience, and connect with internal and external support services. 

Through a student-led committee, events, workshops, fundraisers, and social opportunities, Mind Your Mood is a powerful vehicle for change and discussion at Queen's.
