In 2015, The University of Newcastle Medical Society (UNMS) will host Blue Week, an important nationwide initiative focused on improving the awareness and support for mental health issues

What are we doing it for?

  • To remove the stigma around mental health, to improve the accessibility of resources
  • To create a safe place for conversation to happen.
  • We want to provide an event that is open to all, and most importantly, informative.

Between 18th – 25th of May, UNMS will be hosting a series of events tailored for Medical Students, and addressing the growing issue of Medical Student mental health.
