University Mental Health Day is a national campaign to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing in our community.

The theme this year is ‘No student should ever feel alone with their mental health’ and we recognise that recent events, and those over the previous year have been difficult for many, but the University continues to support the mental health of our community. Here is a selection of the many initiatives to support students:

  • support groups including the Bereavement Social Group to support those that have experienced a recent or historical loss and the Social Networking Group to support those feeling lonely or isolated to meet others in a safe space
  • the expansion of our Social prescribing offer, which includes prescription for exercise, gardening for wellbeing and art in partnership with the Holburne Museum
  • a partnership with Nilaari to offer culturally sensitive counselling
  • Be Well - Talk Now offering 24 hour support via phone or live chat. Counselling in different languages is also available
  • Be Well Week starting 14 March which will be full of activities and workshops to support student wellbeing
  • The SU continue to offer an array of student groups supporting students to connect with others
  • The SU Peer mentoring programme supporting students through their university journey

Students who would like to talk to someone about their mental health or anything else that may be troubling them can reach out to our services at the University:
