#MY12 & USI Mental Health Week Nov 12th-16th 2012

8th November 2012: People are always talking about the importance of looking after yourself physically and watching what you eat. Every day of the week, newspapers include sections on the latest diet and more than ever, herbal teas and organic foods are all over the supermarkets. Unfortunately, many do not have the same attitude when it comes to look after their minds. What is often forgotten about is that it's all connected. If you're not in the right frame of mind, you're less likely to eat right or stay physically active.


DIT Students' Union is proud to present 'Mind Yourself 2012' (#MY12). This is our welfare roadshow which will be geared towards increasing self-awareness of the mind and encouraging a more holistic approach to looking after yourself. #MY12 is about you looking after yourself in every which way you can and having a bit of fun in the process. Be sure to keep an eye out on our Facebook/Twitter pages as well as Ditsu.ie to see what's happening on your site for #MY12.  

#MY12 continues to run every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday lunchtime across the various sites up until the end of November.  If your service is interested in getting involved please contact Aimee at the SU.

Two highlights planned for the week include:


Together with the DIT Counselling service we are hosting DETECT on site who are going to perform ONE MAN MANY VOICES - An engaging one man show that gives a great portrayal of an individual suffering from psychosis.
