If your health and wellbeing isn’t in tip top shape it can affect your academic life. The Students Union Advice Centre can offer advice and direct you to services relating to your health and wellbeing, including mental health, sexual health, alcohol and drugs, and social personal issues


Healthy Eating

Mental Health


Your mental health is just as important as your physical health.

Being aware of your stress levels, eating healthily and taking time for yourself can have a positive impact on your wellbeing. It’s vital that we are conscious of our own mental health and the mental health of those around us in order to reduce stigma and support each other. 

Our mental health impacts on how we perceive, interpret and cope with everyday events and can influence our capacity to learn, communicate and relate to others. Therefore, it is important that, if you are finding things hard with your mental health during your studies, you are aware of the help available to support your wellbeing. 

There is lots of support available both from ourselves, the University and online. If you are unsure where to go, just ask us and we will help.

The below mentioned are links to the various support services that the University Offer:
