Say hello to Raffles University Iskandar’s Psychology Association (RUIPA)!
The group aims to bring its members together in a positive and fun environment while also teaching them about issues that affect the world of Psychology.
RUIPA is a strong advocate for mental health awareness and have organized a number of events that allow for dialogue and discussions regarding the topic. The members had a field trip to the Permai Hospital where they had the opportunity to learn more about mental health issues and current treatments provided in local institutions. RUIPA also organized talks and events that address things that emotionally affect students and their ability to concentrate on studies, such as stress and coping with loss.
Apart from that, RUIPA also ensures that their RUI-ians have the chance to get together, mingle and have fun. Just earlier this year, they organized a “secret angel” event where members secretly bought each other gifts for Valentine’s Day. In October, they organized an Appreciation Day where everyone in RUI came to release their stress and had the chance to relax and hang out with each other.
