Student wellbeing week

Monday 9 - 13 March 2020

Wellbeing Week takes place every March and seeks to raise the awareness of mental health and wellbeing.

As a University, we want to make lots of noise about mental health to help reduce any associated stigma, get more people talking about mental health and raise awareness of the fantastic help and support we have available here at NTU.

For more information and to find out more about what we're doing to help, take a look at the events page.

The Healthy NTU guide also contains lots of useful tips and information on various support services.
