A grow from the National Learning Network Centre in Clash at Wellness Day on Friday.

STUDENTS from National Learning Network Tralee held a Wellness day on Friday 30th September to celebrate the centre being awarded the Amber Flag from Suicide Aware for promoting positive mental health in their centre.

The Wellness day was a hugely successful student led initiative which involved a variety of activities and talks. Among the most successful events was the design of a Wall of Hope, which displayed artwork promoting positivity as well as a Positive Affirmation Display and Small Things Matters Tips.

Other activities included Guided Meditation and Open Art sessions, Team Building Exercises and talks on Equality and Wellness. Students from all courses did a fantastic job in decorating the centre brightly which led to an upbeat and positive vibe throughout the day.

Many of the students have experienced mental health difficulties so it is really positive to see the way they have led this campaign.

The Amber Flag initiative aims to encourage colleges to promote and actively bring about a culture change in the promotion of positive mental health within the educational system and other organisations. It is hoped that further events will be held in the lead up to Christmas, culminating in the centres NLN’s Got Talent in December.
