Welfare: Health Q&A and Stereotypes
Friday 19 October 2018 / 2pm - 5pm
Hey all, we will be having a welfare session this week and the event will be divided up like a so:
This is where you can write down questions on a word document that will be left on the computer (projector will be off so you won't see anyone elses on screen). These could be involving:
- Services that DMU and MyGateway offer to assist students with their studies
- The society
- Any mental health enquiry
We will then answer the questions during the last 30mins or so of our event and you can ask any other questions verbally too druing this session.
Here we can discuss about what people have tradionally stereotyped you as regarding your mental health and how these may be false. We can also talk about how you challenge these stereotypes (through your everyday activities and when someone makes these stereotypes about you).
There will also be some entertainment in terms of cards and potentially board games. There may be other stuff we do if requested.
Feel free to come down and relax in an environment that is a safe space for everyone. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
