When we feel well, everything is easier and we can cope better with the niggles and challenges that life throws at us every now and again. Understanding and looking after your wellbeing is an investment in yourself – and one that will reap benefits for the rest of your life.
You can explore the options available to understand various aspects of mental and emotional wellbeing and what they look like for you.
Connecting with others is key for looking after your wellbeing. We know that it is not always easy for students to establish new friendships and feel comfortable around others. If that is you, you are not alone. But, be encouraged – there are lots of opportunities for you to get to know other students and University staff through clubs, societies, peer support groups and sports activities.
Spirituality and cultural communities are an important aspect of our wellbeing and a source of encouragement and friendship. Whether you belong to a particular religious group or are exploring aspects of spirituality, or simply want to connect with others with a shared sense of ‘home’, finding your community is important.
