Partisipate on the campaign – pull a stunt for compassion!

On Students’ Mental Health Day on Wednesday 18 April we campaign for compassion. We invite everyone to think up and implement activities for increasing compassion in study communities. Anyone can organize activities – students and staff alike. Imagination is the only limit when thinking up ideas!
