Taking care of your wellbeing


Below you’ll find information about different things you can do to look after your wellbeing. Proactive self-care can help you to build a foundation of psychological resources to help you take care of yourself in good times – and in difficult ones too.

Knowing where to start can be overwhelming. If you need any help, our contact details are at the bottom of this page – get in touch and we can help to point you in the right direction. 

You can also chat live with a wellbeing advisor between 11am-12pm and 3pm-4pm Monday-Friday when the university is open, excluding bank holidays and closure days. The chat will also be checked for messages throughout the working week.
