Where’s Your Head At? is one of a number of Societies based at the University of Suffolk. With a primary focus on mental health, the Society also focuses on general wellbeing; aiding students & staff with additional issues such as stress or even loneliness, through events and socials.
WYHA? hosts weekly meet ups which are currently held on a Wednesday 6.00-7:30pm at Cult Café. Here, students can grab a drink or a bite to eat and socialise with the other members, but you are welcome to bring along study materials too. We understand that events and meet ups can seem daunting at times, but our committee members are all lovely and are here if you would like some encouragement. If coming to a casual meet up for half an hour would seem more manageable you are also more than welcome to do so. Our members are all very friendly and understanding too!
We also host a mindfulness session every Thursday 6.00-7.00pm, however this may be subject to change (all updates and details regarding events and meet ups will be on our Facebook page). In these sessions, there will be mindful colouring, meditation, or another activity available – as well as refreshments, but you can come along if you just wish to have a quiet space to study.
This term we are planning an event to raise awareness for University Mental Health Day (1st March).
We encourage any suggestions for future events, or comments regarding the Society through our Facebook page. Message us if you have any thoughts and one of the committee will get back to you!
The committee members are Ashleigh Morton (President), Rebecca Hudson (Secretary) and Maddie Norris (Treasurer and Recruitment Officer). Anyone is welcome to join the Society whether you have a mental health condition or not. You can also bring a friend along if you wish.
If you would like to contact anyone on our committee for dates and times of events, or would like to contact us regarding advice about where you can go for professional help – feel free to message us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/WYHAUOS
