Miami University’s Stress Less week prioritizes students’ mental health

Miami University Emphasizes Self-Care During ‘Stress Less Week,’ Encourages Community Support for Mental Wellness

Miami University is currently celebrating “Stress Less Week,” a week-long event aimed at helping students manage stress and anxiety. Many students, including senior Abigail Templin, find the semester to be overwhelming and struggle with self-care as the workload increases. Templin acknowledges that as schoolwork piles up, things like social activities, exercise, and eating habits can suffer.

To address this issue, the university has organized a variety of activities throughout the week. These activities include therapy dogs, painting and drawing, puzzles, yoga, and stress less workshops. The Assistant Director for Mental Health Promotion and Education, Katelyn Howell, emphasizes the importance of students taking time for themselves and prioritizing their mental and emotional well-being.

Templin believes that these events help normalize conversations about mental health on campus and remind students that they are not alone in their struggles. By coming together as a community, students can support each other and promote a culture of self-care and mental wellness.
