‘Dee-Stress’, a 28-page colouring book that will enable students to relax is to be launched by Dundee University Students’ Association (DUSA) on Thursday 2nd March.

Released on the national University Mental Health Day, ‘Dee-Stress’ is filled with prominent landmarks such as the Caird Hall, the RRS Discovery and the Magdalen Green bandstand alongside advice and services available to students at the University.

The book was designed by former Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design students Kevin Biggins, Jill Montgomery and Maha Ghani.
