WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - You may see green bandanas around Purdue's campus this week. They are in honor of Mental Health Awareness Week being recognized Monday the 17th through Friday the 21st.

This week is for students and faculty to check in with their mental health. There are a series of events being held during the week to bring light to mental health issues, including group exercise classes, social events and guest speakers.

Students and staff are encouraged to check in with the eight dimensions of wellness: intellectual, occupational, environmental, physical, multicultural, social, emotional and spiritual.

Provost Jay Akridge said a big part of this week is breaking the stigma about asking for help.

"There is a likely a source here to get it so there should be no stigma about accessing that resource," he said. "People want to be of help, to be of assistance."
