Understanding mental health is a part of support for others. We're planning to train hundreds of staff and students to be better equipped to understand and support mental health.
The SU Mental Health Team
Wellbeing is so important at university, students away from home, experiencing loads of new scary and exciting things and feeling the pressure in their degree.
We're creating a team of volunteers dedicated to supporting students maintain positive wellbeing, by supporting SU wellbeing activities and services.
Sometimes talking things through, or someone asking how things are going can make all the difference. We want to have one-to-one conversations with students to check in on we're doing, and signpost what support is available.
We'll be giving out a free plant at every chat we have with a 'self-care' leaflet for you to use.
The University student support team went through some changes at the start of the year. They restructured with the aim to provide better support for students. Our aim is to evaluate these changes and make sure that support is better for everyone.
