Students, faculty, and staff, welcome to UPEI Mental Health Week 2018! The call for committee members went out in January and a resounding group of 30 creative and caring individuals came together from across campus to establish the working committee. We hope you enjoy the events we have organized this year and that you use every opportunity to come and celebrate together—relationships matter.

Every day, be sure to check out the following Mental Health Week feature events:

Info Booth, Ball Pit & Build a Quilt (Monday–Friday: W. A. Murphy Student Centre (MSC) Concourse 10 am–3 pm)

Drop by the Information Booth. Volunteers will be on hand to welcome you and pass along handouts and resources. While you’re there, take a minute to add a patch to the quilt to show the relationships that matter to you and hop in the ball pit—you just might make a new friend.

Info Booth & Ask a Counsellor (Monday–Friday: Robertson Library Breezeway, and AVC Foyer)

Stop by for information, tips, resources, and ways you can participate in the week’s events. Plus...Have a question about UPEI's counselling services but not sure who to ask? Ask a counsellor! During Mental Health Week, there will be a box in both the AVC and Robertson Library at the MHW info booths. Submit your question using one of these boxes, and it will be answered by a counsellor. Your question and answer will be posted anonymously on the wall behind the MHW info booths in both buildings.

Zen Zone

Relationships matter, and one of the most important relationships you will encounter in your lifetime is the one you have with yourself. The W.A. Murphy Student Centre (MSC) Day Lounge will be designated as the Zen Zone for Mental Health Week. This space will serve as an area for relaxation, reflection, and mindfulness. Open Monday to Friday from 10 am–3 pm, members of the campus community are invited to come into the Zen Zone and participate in quiet activities such as colouring, journaling, reading, and reflective thought.
