THE team at Clever Student Lets has launched a series of events in the city to raise awareness of Mental Health Awareness Week – taking place from the 13th to 19thMay.

Felicity Shaw, sales manager, at Clever Student Lets, said: “We are organising a series of events at City College, Plymouth College of Art, and on the campus of the University of Plymouth to mark mental health week.”

“Mental Health Awareness Week is hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, and the theme this year is ‘Body Image’ – and how we think and feel about our bodies,’ she said.

The first of the events takes place on Tuesday 14thMay, with ‘FREE HUGS’ to help sooth being stressed out. Hugs bring greater social support and generally a sign of decreasing stress, said Miss Shaw.

On Wednesday 15thMay, at Plymouth College of Art, a whirlwind of pillow fights will take place giving stress students the chance to let off steam in epic pillow fights.

Clever Student Lets are organising a special Vanpool Karaoke sessions where students can sing out their hearts behind the wheel, at City College Plymouth, on Thursday at 2pm. The event is based on the Carpool Karaoke that has seen some of the world’s biggest celebrities sing it out behind the wheel with TV host James Cordon.

On Friday, a ‘Doodle Day’ is planned at Plymouth College of Art, at 3pm, for students, artists, illustrators to pick up their pens, pencils and paints – to help people destress.
