This week sees the launch of a new campaign which aims to help all our students take steps to achieve and maintain good mental wellbeing.
The campaign, which is based on the NHS’s 5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing, will explore ideas and things to try which may make you feel happier, more positive and able to get the most from life and your studies.

Over the next few weeks we will be encouraging all students to try out the NHS’s Five Steps to Mental Wellbeing. Keep an eye on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts as well as our Student News pages for ideas around how you can get involved.
If at any time during your studies you feel you might benefit from some extra support, we are here to help.
We offer a wellbeing drop-in between 11am-3pm every weekday in the Alsop Building for practical and pastoral support in a confidential space. You don’t need to book – simply come along to the Student Welfare Advice and Guidance Information Point on the ground floor of the Alsop Building (on University Square).
