Student Council Organizes Mental Health Seminar

On 4 April, the World Maritime University Student Council (WMUSC) arranged a guest lecture on mental health in support of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3 focused on good health and well-being. Ms Victoria Nkatha, Founder and CEO of Responding to Life was the guest lecturer.

Mr. Kwadwo Forson-Adaboh, President of the WMUSC, remarked, “It is imperative to provide this platform to learn about mental health issues because stress and depression can affect anyone. Therefore, students’ understanding of the subject must be increased in order for them to effectively manage these challenges if the need arises, for themselves, friends, family, or colleagues”. 

Ms Nkatha’s presentation raised awareness of the subject of mental health and well-being and provided information on best practices to manage challenges such as stress and depression. The lecture was well received by the students and WMU staff in attendance and it was agreed that continuing discussions would be of benefit both personally and professionally. WMUSC Vice President, Ms Zinia Bungula, moderated the discussion.

The WMUSC represents the desires of the whole student body, promotes and protects student rights and welfare and fosters a close relationship between students and the University administration.
