Friendship Bench in Support of Mental Health
A new “friendship bench” intended to encourage discussion of mental health was unveiled today at the University of Guelph.
The bright yellow bench is located in Branion Plaza for community members to unwind and discuss their own mental health and that of others.
The Friendship Bench was created to encourage discussion of mental health challenges.
The bench contains a URL for campus and provincial resources, and services for mental health and suicide prevention.
