North West Regional College – Stanislava Stoyanova, PA
Good For Me Good for FE Mental Health Awareness and Volunteer weeks Report

On Monday 22nd April NWRC supported the launch of Derry City and Strabane as a District of Hope and declared our College as a Campus of Hope.

"Making Hope Happen" is a partnership initiative with RESILIO and North West Community Network and has been endorsed by the Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council. On 27th April 2024 Derry and Strabane District Council became the First District of Hope and NWRC became the First Campus of Hope.

This is an era of uncertainty and despair for many. We know that hopelessness is one of the prime predictors for poor mental health and sadly suicide. We believe hope events are needed more than ever.
The college ran a week-long series of activities taking place in all our campuses for both staff and students from Monday 22nd - 26th of April.

The first event was arranged by Student Services, in which we held a coffee morning for staff and students, where they could also pick up mental health resources and sunflower seeds as the sunflower is the universal symbol of Hope.
