Today marks the beginning of Bite Size Breaks, a week of stress busting activities and sessions brought to you by the UPSU Advice Centre and the VP Welfare and Diversity, Tilda Fraser.
The events and activities range from free fresh fruit from the SU roof every morning (provided by Host - Student Accommodation), to mindfulness sessions provided by Plymouth Options, from sports taster sessions run by groups of students to screenings of episodes of Friends in the SU every day at 2pm. They provide short, bite size breaks from daily stress to take some time out and try something new.
Coinciding with Mental Health Awareness Week, the week aims to reduce stress and to increase awareness of all the support services that are available to you as University of Plymouth students.

Read what University of Plymouth students have said about the UPSU Advice Centre:
- “Super support and understanding, as has been the case throughout the last 5 years. Not simply knowledgeable but they are always up to date with current policies and procedures.”
- “I would strongly recommend that you seek the support of the Students’ Union, who people say are really good in these circumstances. Bring someone along with you to the formal meeting – the Students’ Union can provide you with someone who has experience in this.”
- “Extremely open and friendly staff! Very open to questions. If staff didn’t know the answer they were more than happy to spend time finding one to get back to us. Super friendly bunch! 10/10 would recommend!”
