Healthy Selfie Week

Join us October 7-11, 2019 for a week of events that support your mental well-being and help eliminate mental health stigma at UMB. The Wellness Hub is dedicated to providing mental health education and support to reduce mental health stigma at UMB.  The Wellness Hub has teamed up with American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) to bring you “Healthy Selfie Week,” a week focused on mental health in graduate school by providing workshops, trainings, and prevention education for the UMB community.

Graduate students experience mental health issues including anxiety, depression, and social isolation. According to the 2016 UMB Healthy Minds survey, administered to all UMB students, 83% of respondents reported feeling overwhelmed with all they had to do and 82.5% of UMB students felt exhausted (not from physical activity). Many universities, like UMB, are making mental health a priority on their campus.

Prioritize your mental well-being. Lead a healthier student life. A big thank you to all the student organizations who have supported and are participating in “Healthy Selfie Week” including Community Health Addictions Team (CHAT), Scholars for Recovery, Students United for Policy, Education, and Research (SUPER), and UMB’s National Alliance on Mental Illness. And thank you to all our student services for your support including CulinArt, Student Counseling Center, and URecFit.
