Join us on campus for a Mood Walk to benefit your mental health!

A new program to help promote mental health is now available on campus.

Mood Walks for Campus is an initiative that encourages physical activity as a way to improve both physical and mental health. This free, flexible and fun opportunity is open to all students, staff and faculty at the University of Guelph-Humber and Humber College.

An increasing body of evidence suggests that one of the best ways to improve well-being is by simply spending more time outdoors. Spending time in nature has been shown to reduce stress, improve concentration, and bolster creative problem-solving.
