Emotional health and wellbeing

Your emotional wellbeing is just as important as your physical wellbeing. Student life can sometimes feel overwhelming, and many students can experience loneliness, stress, anxiety and low mood at times. Our resources can give you the knowledge and skills you need to help you manage these feelings.

If you find that these feelings are ongoing or having an impact on your studies or your personal life you might want to consider speaking to one of our specialist teams for further advice and support.

Stamp out stress

We know exams and assessments can be a stressful time, which is why we are running the Stamp Out Stress (SOS) campaign. The campaign provides support, advice, and activities to help you Stamp Out Stress.
