The Associated Students of Madison will collaborate with several other campus groups to host a Mental Health Coalition Fair, which would aim to reduce stress among University of Wisconsin-Madison students before finals.
At the fair, which will take place Dec. 4, there will be carnival-style booths consisting of interactive activities, massage chairs, yoga, food sampling and other educational resources for students stressed out about heavy workloads and exams, according to ASM Assistant Press Office Director Jesse Pollans.
“It really benefits the student body,” Pollans said. “It gives students a place to go for a few hours, relax and do things they do not normally do.”
ASM has developed plans for the fair throughout the course of the fall semester along with University Health Services and campus groups “Active Minds,” “Ask, Listen and Save” and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
The event will take place from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Education Commons in the Education Building.
