This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, which takes place 9-15 May, and is hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, is all about recognising the signs of ‘loneliness’ and building meaningful connections with friends, family, colleagues and communities.
While loneliness affects many of us at one time or another – the societal changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic have given rise to a sense of loneliness and isolation in many of our daily routines.
This year’s theme gives us a chance raise awareness of the links between loneliness and poor mental health, actively check on those around us and to take the time to reconnect with our own networks.
Our team of Wellbeing Advisers are available to provide initial advice and support on a wide range of issues that might be affecting your general welfare.
On the theme of ‘loneliness’, the team have created a dedicated self-help guide on coping with loneliness and homesickness while at University which you can read here: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/studentsupport/mental-wellbeing/self-help/name,1270897,en.html
The team are based in the Alsop Building on University Square. You can book an appointment using the online booking system or contact the team via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advice and Guidance are part of the wider Student Services team, which also includes our Counselling and Mental Health Advisory Services, as well Money, Disability, and International Advice and Guidance. For more information on the support available via the Student Service teams click here.
The University has created an online menu of self-help resources that cover topics including anxiety, depression, stress, imposter syndrome and sleep. The resources are designed to give you some ideas that will help you to stop problems from escalating.
Have a look and you may find an answer to your concern. To find out more and view the self-help library please click here.
Health Assured offer students a free, confidential advice line, with help available to talk through any problem, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The helpline is confidential. Qualified counsellors and advisors understand the pressures of student life, and are there to help anyone who needs it. Sometimes, simply talking through your issues with someone, in the moment, can be a great relief. Call the 24/7 helpline for free: 0800 028 3766.
