Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.

This May TEDxSurreyUniversity is collaborating with The Surrey Students Union Support Zone to bring 'Let's Talk: Mental Health' during Mental Health Awareness Week 2018 (14th May-20th May).
