Merry go round happiness project

This student-run campaign encouraged students to find happiness in their day and to share it with the student community.

The project had both a social media and outreach presence on City campus and promoted positive mental health messages. They also invited students to interact with the Happiness Maypole, constructed by the project team themselves.

Over 300 students took part, writing down things that made them happy and hanging them on the Happiness Maypole. Responses received included ‘dancing’, ‘friends’ and ‘sunshine’.
