“This event is understanding not just the emotional impacts, but physical impacts of stress,” said Spelliscy.

“We will let people know how they can set their priorities straight and find real ways to manage stress.”

When it comes to mental health, Spelliscy said there’s one simple thing you can ask yourself to feel better in the long term.

“You have to take minute during the day and ask yourself, what do you value? Do you value exercise and eating well,?” said Spelliscy.

“After, you can then introduce these healthy behaviours into your daily routine.”

The event takes place during Psychology Month, which is a national campaign held every February to raise awareness of the role psychology plays in everyday lives.

Spelliscy’s event is free and all are welcome to attend.
