MindWell Student Roadshow to celebrate World Mental Health Day!

MindWell, the mental health website for people in Leeds, will be running its first ever roadshow on 10 October, this year's World Mental Health Day.

Marking this year's theme of 'Young people in a changing world', the MindWell team will be zooming around town, visiting seven colleges and universities, all in one day!

Alicia Ridout, Product Owner of MindWell, says: “MindWell has up-to-date information about local services for people in Leeds aged over 16, help for what to do if you're struggling and a wealth of self-help tools and techniques to help you to look after your mental health.

We're delighted that MindWell has become a key online tool being used in colleges, universities, GP surgeries and student unions across the city to support the wellbeing of students. The MindWell team is excited to be out and about on World Mental Health Day, this year, talking to as many students and college staff as possible."

On the day the team will be hosting pop-up stalls in each of the colleges to share MindWell resources and wellbeing tools and tips with students. There will be free promotional materials and some fun activities to get people thinking about what would help them to look after their wellbeing.

The team would love students and staff of these colleges to join the MindWell Student Roadshow at the following times:

9.00-10.30am Leeds University Union (LUU), in the main foyer
