Mental Health Week: Chris Cheers Psychology Workshop

7.09.2022-4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Re-defining self-care and building resilience through your “why”.

Balancing work and study is tough at the best of times. And these last few years have certainly not been the best of times. This workshop aims to help you focus on self-care focused on your own needs rather than expectation. We will also discuss how to build resilience through the skills of emotional agility and the importance of anchoring yourself in what is meaningful, especially in the context of these times of uncertainty.
