Managing and Maintaining Our Wellbeing (23rd September, 19:30 BST)

There is a lot of talk at the moment about the impact of COVID-19 and the effects it can have on our physical health. However, it is just as important during these challenging times that we do not neglect our mental health. That’s why we have our new Student President, Ron Deris, who will be leading us in a virtual wellbeing group, helping us to prep our minds for the term ahead.

This session will be a safe space to explore the theme of managing our well-being during the upcoming academic term. Topics of discussion include looking at and reflecting on how we might feel about starting a new term with so much uncertainty still surrounding us, what we might need to put in place to be able to feel safe enough to succeed and have a positive experience and look at ways we can manage our wellbeing in the coming months ahead. The session will primarily be an interactive discussion where you will have an opportunity to openly share your ideas on these topics with others.
