    It's University Mental Health Day today and the theme is commUNIty.

    Communities are groups of people that share something in common. This could be something like where they live, a characteristic, an interest, a religion, and things like that.

    We're all part of our local communities, and you may also be part of the student community, or the community here on TSR.

    What communities are you a part of?

    I guess I'm part of various communities, to different extents:

    - Church community. I rarely attend church (on mental health grounds) and so feel quite disconnected from it, but I'd hope my parish would still count me as part of the community

    - Uni community. I'm fairly well known in my uni department and though it's not without its problems, this is the uni that I've been happiest at

    - Sri Lankan community in London. Again this is not a group I'm particularly well-integrated into and it's not like every Sri Lankan in London knows every other Sri Lankan. But still

    - I'm also part of a community with the group I volunteer with. Had to sadly withdraw from volunteering with them in November on health grounds, but hoping to get back into it at some point


    Those are the main ones I can think of. There are probably more though
