Anglia Ruskin University co-organises unique event for World Mental Health Day
Cambridge’s inaugural Human Library event, organised by Anglia Ruskin University and SUN Network, aims to challenge stereotypes and promote tolerance for World Mental Health Day.
On Wednesday, 8 October from 1.30pm until 4.30pm, anyone can drop in to Anglia Ruskin’s Cambridge campus on East Road where books are people and reading is a conversation. Simply turn up, “borrow” one of our volunteers and hear about their experiences of prejudice and stigma.
The subjects are diverse and ready to talk about a range of prejudices. These are mainly related to mental health, drugs and alcohol addiction and sexuality. Anglia Ruskin’s Community Engagement Officer, Miriam Berg, said:
