University Mental Health Day
Conversation starters for students
- Is it important to have a university mental health day to specifically raise awareness of student’s mental health? If so, why?
- Do you think Jewish students have a different experience with their mental health on campus in comparison with the wider student community? What are these differences?
- How would you appropriately support a friend who wanted support for their mental health? Where would you signpost them to?
- Do you feel you have the knowledge to identify poor mental health for both yourself and others?
- How can Jewish campus organisations and Jami further the conversation about student mental health?
- What are the current challenges to accessing support for your mental health at university?
- How do you balance focusing on your self-care with other responsibilities?
