Mental Health Awareness Whiteboard Sabotaged With Humour

Mental Health Awareness Whiteboard Sabotaged With Humour

Were not hiding emotions behind a veil of humour. Im fine thanks and you?

Sometimes, as a treat, OUSA will do something with good intentions that is nonetheless destined for disaster. Setting up a whiteboard in the Link for Mental Health Awareness Week and allowing people to write whatever they choose on a Post-It note, anonymously, is one of those things.

The mental health awareness whiteboard asked (in 60pt Times New Roman font): What do you do to keep yourself well?

Some people responded with the wholesome things that OUSA was probably aiming for. Those people said: rock climbing, surf, eat, mix DnB, take my antidepressants, wine night with the girls, therapy, drink tea, deep breath work, anything to keep my body moving, call my parents, and learn a new song on guitar.

The rest were less wholesome, but equally valid:
