Miami University’s Stress Less week addresses mental health of students

Stress Less Week at Miami University: Prioritizing Mental Health and Emotional Well-Being

Miami University is celebrating “Stress Less Week” with a series of activities aimed at helping students manage stress and anxiety. As the semester progresses, self-care may be neglected in favor of juggling schoolwork, which can lead to neglecting other aspects of life such as social activities, exercise, or healthy eating habits.

To address this issue, the university has organized a range of activities for Stress Less Week including therapy dogs, painting and drawing sessions, puzzles, yoga classes, and stress less workshops. The goal is to remind students of the importance of prioritizing their mental health and emotional well-being. Katelyn Howell, Assistant Director for Mental Health Promotion and Education highlighted the significance of taking time for oneself.

Miami University senior Abigail Templin emphasized the importance of normalizing conversations about mental health. She believes that events like Stress Less Week help students feel supported and connected, acknowledging that many students struggle with issues related to mental health. By coming together as a community, students can feel more comfortable addressing these challenges.

In addition to these activities, Miami University is providing resources and opportunities for students to take care of themselves mentally and emotionally. By participating in Stress Less Week, students are encouraged to prioritize self-care and well-being, fostering a healthy and supportive campus environment.
