As part of the annual university Student Health Week, which this year will have the theme of ‘Feeling Great’, the following events will be taking place at Perth College UHI from 29th February-4th March 2016;

 

The Library will be putting on a themed display each day covering the topics below;

 

  • Self-help books
  • Promote reading as a hobby
  • Music collection
  • Exercise and fitness books
  • Feel-good films
  • Counselling skills books

There will also be "Library Prescriptions" which will tie in with the social prescription and book prescription initiatives, and mini quizzes relating to Mental health throughout the Library along with interactive screens and promotions on hobbies and interests.

 

The Students Association are looking to run mini workshops on building confidence and possibly assertiveness, and a parenting group with shared experiences (to be confirmed).

 

The Hair and Beauty departments will be offering mini facials, pedicures and manicures together with haircuts at a discounted rate.

 

A number of promotional stalls from external charities with an interest in well-being will also be on display, including;

 

  • PKAVS
