Mental Health awareness week 2021 – Get involved!

We know that the last year has been difficult, we’ve had to adapt to a new way of studying, socialising and working.

Our staff here in the Student Zone have been enjoying lunch time walks, Carly says ” Getting out at lunchtime gives me an energy boost, I feel motivated in the afternoon and I feel like the walks really have a positive effect on my mental wellbeing”

We challenge you to do the same. Send us some pictures of your journey, Rickerby Park & Bitts Park are close by and full of awesome picture opportunities, send your pictures to studentzone@carlisle.ac.uk and we will add your pics to an online gallery. There may even be a little treat for those who enter!

This is Carly’s snapshot of her walk, we can’t wait to see yours.
