To increase awareness of student mental health issues, and the support available
The Q&A session aims to promote open and frank discussion about the challenges of managing mental health issues from a number of perspectives, as well as tackling stigma attached to mental health and dispelling any myths.
As well as watching movie, “Lars and the Real Girl”, which is a wonderful, positive portrayal of mental health and tolerance, the event will incorporate a Q&A session with a panel of Goldsmiths students and staff, facilitated by Tama White. This session aims to promote open and frank discussion about the challenges of managing mental health issues at Goldsmiths from a number of perspectives, as well as tackling stigma attached to mental health and dispelling any myths.
There will also be a brief meditation session at the start and refreshments. We will also be visited by the Blue Elephant Theatre group who will tell us about a performance they are currently working on called "Ssshh". This funny and moving performance aims to give the audience an insight into what it feels like to live with mental health problems.
Come along and meet the Disability Team, Students' Union representatives, mental health mentors and staff from the Counselling Service, Goldsmiths staff and students.
* From Monday 13 May - Friday 17 May, 12pm-2pm, there will be a Mental Health Awareness Week stand in Loafers: http://www.gold.ac.uk/calendar/?id=6516 *
