Institute of Psychology Marks World Mental Health Day with a Special Event
In observance of World Mental Health Day, BNU's Institute of Psychology organized a meaningful day of activities on Tuesday, October 10, 2023. The lead for the Awareness Walk was taken by an assembly of prominent figures and dedicated individuals from the university, featuring the Vice Chancellor, Dr. Moeed, the Director of the Institute of Psychology, Dr. Ruhi, as well as Deans, Heads of Departments, Senior members of the management, students, and staff. Together, they embarked on a symbolic march from the Sartaj Aziz Building to SLASS Lawn to kickstart the day's activities in honor of World Mental Health Day.
Following the Awareness Walk, students and faculty members joined hands for a bake sale, the proceeds of which will be contributed to a mental-health charitable organization.
Additionally, for those with artistic inclinations, the Institute of Psychology hosted a poster-making competition later in the day, providing a creative outlet for expressing thoughts and emotions related to mental health. The event was a heartfelt tribute to World Mental Health Day, emphasizing the importance of mental well-being and fostering a sense of togetherness within the BNU community.
