10th May 2021
This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from Monday 10th May and we have a range of events planned to increase awareness of this subject and to highlight the services and support available at the college.
The health and wellbeing of our staff and students is always an upmost priority to everyone at The City of Liverpool College. Throughout the week, we’ll be talking about the leading mental health organisations we work with, offering wellbeing tips via our social media channels and showcasing the fantastic work of our support staff who play a vital role in helping students during their time with us.
We’ll also be creating 50 wellbeing packs and sending them to students, and will have stalls in each of our five city centre campuses to promote college support services and our Students’ Union programmes. You’ll find our team at the following centres between 12pm and 1pm:
Monday 10th – The Arts Centre
Tuesday 11th – Duke Street
Wednesday 12th – Clarence Street
Thursday 13th – Vauxhall Road
Friday 14th – The Learning Exchange (LEX)
Students can also keep an eye out for a very special competition on our Students’ Union Instagram account (@COLCSU), where we’ll be looking for the best nature photos, with the winner receiving a £25 voucher for Liverpool ONE. Meanwhile, college staff are invited to attend an online mindfulness session, and will also be able to take part in mental health training tutorials
We have further activities being planned by our Level 1 Health and Social Care students, including displays, leaflets, poetry, and daily mindfulness exercises, so keep an eye out for more soon!
