The critics argued that the name ‘Positivity Week’ was dismissive and condescending to those dealing with mental health issues.
SRC Vice President Student Support, Jess Mc Grellis, in a piece for the Glasgow Guardian which announced the name change said:
“I am sorry for any offence caused by the choice of the name ‘Positivity Week’. This was not our intention. I believe that there has been a misunderstanding over the concept and objectives for the week, and this misunderstanding has been caused by a poorly-worded email sent out by us to all students.”
