ECA Wellbeing Week might be over but that doesn’t mean that students’ mental health is any less important. After a week of meditation, workshops and seminars full of self-care tips – and even cute dogs! -  it is hoped that those who attended absorbed the positivity and that, overall, awareness about mental health was raised.

Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) will be holding a ‘Wellbeing Week’ (5 – 9 February), which will include activities such as the Big White Wall, Dream Whispering, Careers Workshops, and Thera-pets.
