Wellbeing Support

Wellbeing Support 2x1 eng

Our mental health changes all the time and it depends on many things. You may feel stressed about coursework deadlines, affected by the changing weather, or missing loved ones. Support is available – whether that’s attending a wellbeing event, joining the Togetherall community, or accessing one-to-one support.

Wellbeing Advice Appointments

As exciting as university can be, it can also come with its challenges. No matter where you are in your university journey, it’s never too late to ask for help.

Our Wellbeing Advisers are here to help find the best support for you. Wellbeing advice appointments provide you with an opportunity to discuss your university support, mental health, and wellbeing. Appointments last for around 45 minutes and can be booked through Advice Zone Online. Wellbeing Advice appointments are available on campus, via Microsoft teams, or telephone. 

Wellbeing Events

The Wellbeing Service organise various events that help students address and overcome common pitfalls during their time at university and develop strategies that can be used every day to improve their wellbeing and mental health.

Yoga, 11.30-12.30pm, Friday 2 February, Treforest Campus

This gentle yoga class is perfect for beginners. The slow-paced workshop will focus on breathing, poses and mindfulness. Practising yoga improves strength, flexibility, balance, and overall health.

Knit and Stitch, 1-2pm, Tuesday 6 February, Newport Campus

In these sessions, you’ll be taught the basics of knitting. Experienced knitters are also welcome to bring along their projects and share their skills and experience with the group. The session will provide opportunities to meet new people in an informal small group setting.

Chance to Chat, 3-4pm, Wednesday 7 February, Online

Sometimes it can be difficult to strike up a conversation and get to know people, and that’s where we come in. Guided by a member of the Wellbeing team, students will be encouraged to talk about their hobbies, interests, likes and dislikes, all in a friendly, non-judgemental setting.

Chatter and Natter, 11-12pm, Wednesday 14 February, Cardiff Campus

Coffee and a catch-up? Make new connections with a free tea, coffee or beverage of your choice.
