Juice Mental Health Awareness Week 8-14 May 2017

We’re committed to making the University a remarkable place to work and everyone’s health and wellbeing sits at the heart of this aim. Juice is about encouraging and inspiring you to look after your wellbeing, both physical and mental.

During this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, Juice will be supporting you to find your healthy balance by exploring your personal wellbeing options and offering you opportunities to get together with people from across the University through a range of activities. Options include meditation, choir, tai-chi, needlework and the Juice walking group (visit Juice via MUSE to book).

In addition, we’d like you to share personal stories about your wellbeing or any mental health research, projects or initiatives you are involved in within the University or community. Look out for these as we share them on the In The Spotlight staff pages from 8 May.

As part of the Mental Health Tea & Talk sessions Professor Brendan Stone will also explore some of the key issues that need to be tackled for people living with mental health conditions to have better lives. An informal presentation and Q&A session is taking place on Tuesday 9 May.

Please also browse our Juice articles around creating a positive Mindset. The Health Hub can be accessed through our Juice platform via MUSE. Articles include the value of walking meetings, meditation and the benefits of music on health and wellbeing.

You can also find out how to access mental health support via the staff helpline or within the city of Sheffield by visiting our You don’t have to face it alone pages.
