Sussex Wellbeing Week and University Mental Health Day

Group of students walking in woodland

Thursday 5 March is University Mental Health Day, which also falls during Sussex Wellbeing Week 2020.

Run in partnership between the University and your Students’ Union, Wellbeing Week aims to:

  • raise awareness of wellbeing issues
  • empower you to look after your own wellbeing
  • give you vital information about where to find advice and support.

We know that being at university can be challenging and demanding at times. Wellbeing Week is an opportunity to take some time out and to discover new tools and techniques.

Highlights include:

  • free massage
  • clothes swap and upcycling
  • mindfulness
  • the ever-popular Doggy De-stress.

You can also sign up to workshops on dealing with failure, healthy relationships and writing essays.

For information about the full programme of events visit the Wellbeing Week page.

Head to the Sussexsport pages to find out more about activities including Tai Chi and yoga at Yellowave Beach Sports venue.

Further support

It’s important to remember that we all need support sometimes, no matter how well we try to look after ourselves. This is especially important for people who experience mental health difficulties.
