Miami University’s Stress Less week prioritizes students’ mental health

Miami University Celebrates ‘Stress Less Week’ and Normalizes Conversations about Mental Health on Campus

Miami University is currently celebrating “Stress Less Week” which aims to help students manage stress and anxiety as they navigate the increasing workload of the semester. Senior Abigail Templin, like many other students, finds this time of year challenging and struggles with self-care. Templin acknowledges that as schoolwork piles up, social activities, exercise, and eating habits can suffer.

To address these challenges, the university has organized a variety of activities throughout the week. These include therapy dogs, painting and drawing, puzzles, yoga, and stress less workshops. Katelyn Howell, Assistant Director for Mental Health Promotion and Education at Miami University emphasizes the importance of students taking time for themselves and prioritizing their mental and emotional well-being.

Templin believes that these events help normalize conversations about mental health on campus and remind students that they are not alone in their struggles. By coming together as a community, students can support each other and promote a culture of self-care and mental wellness.
