Rustica Mental Health Breakfast – Launceston Clinical School 2016

On Wednesday 3rd August, Rustica hosted a breakfast for the 80 medical students, based in Launceston. We provided a healthy selection of fruit, yoghurt, museli and Hot Banjo’s Platters.

While this seemed like a lovely gesture there was a hidden adgenda. We spread the message about the importance of looking after your mental health, particularly for the 5th year students who are heading into their final exams.

Rustica volunteers spoke to students over breakfast about what they do for their mental health. Answers varied from exercising, to eating chocolate or spending time with loved ones.

Overall this was a very successful event and everyone left feeling happy and full !
