Mental health is just as important as physical health, and it is important that we take care of both and recognise that both can be affected by external factors. The School of Chemistry supports everyone to develop positive wellbeing as well as helping staff and students when they feel unwell. There are a variety of resources available to everyone on campus, including free mindfulness classes for practice in managing stress or anxiety.
See Change “Green Ribbon” Campaign
Annually, the School of Chemistry postgraduate students host a coffee morning in May, as part of the nationwide See Change “Green Ribbon” campaign. The Green Ribbon is worn to encourage people to talk openly about mental health. This campaign particularly aims to reduce the stigma often associated with mental health issues in Ireland. We invite all staff and students in the School of Chemistry to promote mental health awareness in our workplace by wearing something green.
