Fall Reading Break at the University of Winnipeg
The University of Winnipeg had its first Fall Reading Week in October 2016. Your students’ association worked hard to make this a reality, and we’re so happy to see it materialize!
A fall reading break would be part of a holistic approach to addressing health and wellness on campus. Beyond having services in place that students can access, preventing the onset of mental illness needs to be a key priority. A fall break would allow students to recharge and decompress, relieving some of the pressures that can trigger anxiety or other mental health issues. Focusing on prevention can also result in a reduced strain on existing mental health supports, which are currently in high demand.
