Mental health awareness promoted among Louisians
The College Guidance and Counseling Center has launched its mental health awareness program for students in the University with the theme: “Sound Mind and Sound Body: Synergy for Louisian Students’ Well-Being,” as part of its advocacy in line with the National Mental Health Awareness celebrated every October all over the world.
Slogan and poster making contests were conducted last Oct.13, 2017 to jumpstart the program.
All the slogans and posters are posted at the side of the former Dean of Student Affairs Office to be used as background for a picture-taking contest through the USL Facebook page (www.facebook.com/USLPhilippines).
Moreover, a symposium was held on Oct. 21, 2017 for the official launching of the program in the University. The participants were the University student leaders from academic and non-academic organizations and other identified students.
Mental Health Awareness symposium
Seminars will also be conducted every Friday at 10:30-12:00 from November 2017 to February 2018.
