The mental health of doctors and medical students is a serious concern - as a profession, we have high rates of depression, anxiety, suicide, substance abuse and self medication.
At at time during the year to be announced, WSMS will be holding Blue Week, to tackle the issues surrounding Mental Health. This year, competitions and events will be running throughout the week, ending with our one-and-only - Blue Party!
As the workload piles up, the joyous feelings of Medcamp fade and the exam timetable is released you may be feeling a little blue. Enter our annual Blue Party charity event to lighten the mood and raise money for mental health awareness! Blue Party caps off the end to our Blue Week campaign which includes fun informative events all week at both the medical & clinical schools.
Date: 16th - 20th of April, 2018
