We are currently piloting one programme on Silvercloud. With a focus on resilience, this programme for stress management helps you to identify and enhance existing strengths and skills, and build new ones. This is a pro-active and practical programme built in conjunction with leading clinical and subject matter experts that provides you with the tools and techniques to manage stress and bring balance into your life. Topics you will learn about include:

  • assertiveness
  • problem solving
  • self-esteem
  • communication
  • stress management

'Space from Stress' consists of eight modules, you can complete these in your own time and at your own pace over approximately eight weeks. Each module contains text, video and audio clips as well as interactive and engaging activities that will help you to manage stress and build resilience.

This is an unsupported module on Silvercloud which means that no one will be monitoring any response you may give. If you would like to discuss using it with an adviser or need further help please contact Student Services.

If you require immediate or urgent help please contact your local GP or your community support services, you can find these details on the Find Help page.
