University Mental Health Day 2023

Posted on 5 March 2023

Things you can do to support your wellbeing this University Mental Health Day on Thursday 9 March.

1. Download the TalkCampus app

TalkCampus is our new instant, free 24/7 support for student mental health. Replacing Togetherall, TalkCampus is for students to talk with other students from around the world about the ups and downs of student life. It’s anonymous, safe and moderated and is designed as a place where you can just be yourself and talk about how you’re really feeling.

2. Help inform student wellbeing research

You can directly help inform research into student wellbeing. Researchers based in the Department of Health Sciences are looking into the best strategies to improve student wellbeing and they need your input. Look out for our SWANS student wellbeing study survey invitation in your inbox later this week.

3. Get connected: sign up for Holiday Connect

We know that many students stay on campus over the break. Help us to help you make connections by signing up for Holiday Connect. Just like Student Connect, we’ll match you with other students staying at uni and you’ll also be invited to social get-togethers over the vacation. Sign up for Holiday Connect before 9am on Monday 13 March.

And look out for student wellbeing events happening in your college or department.

Help and support for you

If you are feeling overwhelmed for any reason please know you are not alone and that there is help available. Take a look at our A to Z of wellbeing advice and, if you think you’d benefit from talking to someone, see the help and support page which gives information on all the different support services available to you both on and off campus.
