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

The week of April 19-25 marks Miami University’s “Stress Less Week,” an initiative aimed at promoting self-care and mental wellness among students. As the workload increases, many students struggle to balance their academic responsibilities with personal care.

Senior Abigail Templin acknowledges this struggle firsthand. She finds the semester to be particularly stressful and often neglects her social activities, exercise, and eating habits in favor of schoolwork. However, she recognizes the importance of prioritizing her mental health and well-being.

To support students in managing stress and anxiety, Miami University has organized a variety of activities throughout the week. These include therapy dogs, painting and drawing, puzzles, yoga, and stress less workshops. Katelyn Howell, Assistant Director for Mental Health Promotion and Education at Miami University, emphasizes the importance of taking time for oneself and prioritizing mental health.

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.

Meanwhile, Moeller graduate Trey McBride is living out his dream by playing professional basketball overseas in his third year. Additionally, The Hub OTR will be closing at the end of April as owner announces plans for a new chapter in life outside of restaurant industry.
