This year's Mental Health Awareness Week is focusing on Anxiety. 'Anxiety is one of the most common mental health problems we can face. In a recent mental health survey we carried out around stress, anxiety and hopelessness over personal finances, a quarter of adults said they felt so anxious that it stopped them from doing the things they want to do some or all of the time. Six in ten adults feel this way, at least some of the time. On a positive note, anxiety can be made easier to manage.' - Mental Health Foundation
With this term being a busy period for exams and assignments, you might find that you need some support with your mental health. We understand that seeking help might be daunting but it is important that you talk to someone, so that you can get the support you need. No issue is to big or small, and talking to someone can really help.
We have teams inside and outside of The University ready to help. Student Wellbeing Services are here Monday to Friday 09:00-17:00 (this includes Counselling, Welfare, and our Disability Advisory Service).
If you need urgent Mental Health support please visit our Emergency and urgent help page or call 116 123 to talk to Samaritans. You can also visit our Suicide awareness webpage for more advice and links.
