Celebrate Your Wellbeing: Resources and Support for University Mental Health Day

SEL Mind support for University Mental Health Day

This University Mental Health Day, join South East London Mind to celebrate your wellbeing and explore resources available to support you.

We understand the unique challenges faced by university students. Managing academic pressure, navigating social situations, and dealing with financial concerns can all impact your mental wellbeing. However, you don’t have to navigate these challenges alone.

South East London Mind is here to provide support and resources to help you thrive throughout your university journey.

This year, University Mental Health Day serves as a reminder to prioritise your mental wellbeing and actively take steps to support it.

We encourage you to:

  • Connect with others: Building strong social connections can significantly improve your wellbeing. Engage with your friends, and classmates, or join clubs and societies that share your interests.
  • Develop healthy coping mechanisms: Whether it’s exercise, mindfulness practices, or creative outlets, identify activities that help you manage stress and maintain a positive outlook.
  • Seek help if needed: Don’t hesitate to reach out for support if you’re struggling. South East London Mind offers various services, including individual therapy, online resources, and support groups. You can find more information and contact details on our website.
  • Make use of university resources: Most universities offer dedicated student support services, including counselling centres and wellbeing resources. Don’t hesitate to explore these resources and reach out for assistance if needed.
“The tutors who I chose to open up to were supportive. As a result of asking for help I realised that with a few adjustments I would be able to finish my course, and nobody thought any less of me.”

Remember, taking care of your mental health is crucial for your overall well-being. By prioritising your needs, seeking support when needed, and engaging in activities you find helpful, you can create a positive and fulfilling university experience.

Together, we can create a supportive environment where everyone feels empowered to prioritise their mental health. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need support, and remember, you are not alone.
