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.
Are you a student looking to get involved in a mental health initiative? Volunteering with Mind Your Mood is a great way to make new friends and help to make a difference on campus!
We run regular events, along with Student Wellbeing, to give students the chance to connect with one another, and to look after and maintain their own mental and physical wellbeing. There are no set hours for our volunteers, you can choose when suits you! You can volunteer for a variety of activities - we hold weekly 'Wellbeing on Weekdays' events and have linked with external organisations and charities.Click here to register interest
To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Mind Your Mood at Queen's, we have three relay teams completing Belfast City Marathon to fundraise for Eating Disorders NI.
A team of Student Wellbeing staff, a team of Mind Your Mood volunteers, and our Mind Your Mood student ambassadors will all be completing the marathon. We are fundraising for Eating Disorders NI a charity which aims to provide peer support for people with eating disorders and their loved ones, increase awareness and support skills in the wider community and campaign for eating disorder service improvements. "Our vision is that all people with eating distress will be able to access appropriate, high-quality services as and when they need it. We envision an eating disorder service that is a centre of excellence, integrating statutory, community and lived experiences."Click here to donate
