SUSU’s wellbeing committee have organised various wellbeing events that will commence this week, running from Monday 12th to Friday 16th May.
A number of activities and competitions will be taking place on concourse throughout the week to help signal the importance of student wellbeing.
The team will be giving out ‘stress cubes’, which are printed with information on the 5 steps to wellbeing.
Beckie Thomas, VP Welfare, talks about supporting students:
Students are also more likely to talk to their friends about their problems which is why its essential that we spread the word, especially before exams! Remember, everyone has the power to make a difference to someone’s life no matter if that’s texting a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while or making dinner for someone you know who is dealing with depression.
