Dignity at Warwick
Event 2015
This year’s Dignity at Warwick event was held over 12 key
locations on 18th November 2015 with over 50 staff and student
volunteers – Thank you to all who got involved and made this
event such a success.
The theme of the event was Dignity in Mental Health. During the
event, staff and students were asked to leave their thoughts and
suggestions on ‘What small thing can you do to make the biggest
difference for someone suffering with mental health’. See some
suggestions given below and take a look at the E&D Twitter
feed on our homepage to see more suggestions.
Take time for a chat and
a coffee
Stop listen and don’t
judge
Smile and say hello
Ask if someone is ok, its ok
