World Mental Health Day


World Mental             

                 Health Day

The World Health Organization recognizes World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year. The theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health for the year 2020 was ‘mental health for all’. 

The World Mental Health Day Awareness programs initiated by CCHS brought the Chrisitites together to make mental health a university-wide priority and create a change to the future of student mental health. An Awareness poster was circulated across campuses on 10 October 2020.

The Webinars held to inspire conversations, take action and create change among the student community were:
