Commemoration of World Mental Health Day 2021 - program

NMBU recognizes and observes World Mental Health Day, and this year's campaign is all about Good Mental Health during and after the pandemic. Life during the pandemic has been tough for lots of people. This event is all about paying attention and being present. Follow up (#følgopp). In cooperation with various participants and actors, an extensive program will be offered all through week 41. We encourage everyone to participate, meet new people, spend time together, be present and follow up.

Buddies are encouraged to contact their new students during this week, either invite them for dinner, for an event or a sosial gathering.

Pleas note that we are still working on the details for the program, and the website will be continuously updated.
