Healthy Happy You

The annual university student health event – Healthy, Happy You – takes place every year at the end of February/beginning of March. This also incorporates the national University Mental Health day.

In 2017 events included ‘Be Active’, an inclusive project which encouraged people to try something new and linked all partners in a fun activity with health benefits. Staff and students aimed to reach a target of 773 miles for each campus, giving a combined UHI total of 10,822. Any activity which could be measured and converted into miles was included, from swimming, walking, and wheeling to exercise classes. We’re delighted to announce that we exceeded those targets and the final overall total was 18,632 miles! An amazing achievement by all involved!

The annual photography competition, with the same theme, also took place with a £50 National Book Token as the prize. The winning photograph, plus 11 additional entries with the highest scores, will be included in a 2018 calendar which will be distributed (free) across the partnership at the end of the year.

If you have any queries about Healthy, Happy You please contact Michaela Gilmore or Lyndsay MacColl.

We look forward to another successful event in 2018 and hope you’ll join us then!
