A conversation about mental health

Deputy Principal Students and Campus Life Mary Duma recently participated in a panel at The Indigo Project for World Mental Health Day.

When it comes to mental health Mary says, “Feeling connected, having purpose in life, enjoying moments of success, engaging in a state of flow through music, craft, reading, exercise, meditation, prayer, having people who believe in you and really listen to you – these are all antidotes to the mental health ailments of today’s society.”

“The challenge for all of us is to take charge of our day and prioritise the time we spend with others. Human connection is at the core of existence!”

The event was called Thinking Creatively About Mental Health, promoting discussions around the mind and how to break the stigma around mental health and seeking help.
