The UP Psychology Society, with the goal of spreading awareness of psychology and mental health, will be organizing its annual National Mental Health Week,– a week-long celebration that centers its efforts on raising awareness about mental health and breaking the stigmas that come with it.  The Society’s aim through this event is to hold relevant and sustainable projects to promote mental health awareness and inspire action in communities both inside and outside the University of the Philippines.

Starting on the 24th of October to the 26th of October, join us in Headspace: A Mental Health Fair which will be held in the Palma Hall Lobby, University of the Philippines, Diliman which will last the whole day. This event will allow the promotion of a culture of wellness amongst students by having several psychology organizations’ booths, counseling services as well as wellness organizations set up in the lobby.

On the 25th of October, take a break and release all the tension and pressure as you accompany us in Recharge: Workshops for Relaxation and Recreation! This event aims to help students realize that mental health is important for everyone and not just those with mental illnesses or disorders, Recharge will be hosting several activities from 5:30 – 7:00 PM.
