Students’ Mental Health Day

Students’ Mental Health Day

Students’ Mental Health Day will be held again this spring. The day will be Thursday 25 April, and the campaign will run for two weeks, from 15 to 26 April 2019. Our goal is to provoke conversations about students’ mental health and to invite everyone to support the cause of mental wellbeing. Read more about the campaign.

Campaign theme 2019: #ruuhkakevät – What’s stressing you?

Students’ Mental Health Day has a different theme each year. In 2019, the campaign theme will be stress. The aim of this theme selection is to highlight the significance that recognizing and relieving stress has for mental health. The way we handle stress has an immense impact on our wellbeing. Stress is not just an individual thing; the demands from the community play a large role. During the campaign, we will be sharing varied and interesting stress-related content on social media. Stay tuned and follow our hashtag: #ruuhkakevät (springrush)

Participate in the #ruuhkakevät campaign!

On Students’ Mental Health Day on Thursday 25 April, everyone is encouraged to participate in the #ruuhkakevät campaign. Study communities around Finland can think up ideas and actions for recognizing stress and promoting mental wellbeing in their everyday lives. The mental health day is open to all, to students and professionals alike. Imagination is the only limit when organizing activities. You can also participate in Facebook.
