Student Advice supports University Mental Health Day
This year the University Mental Health Day takes place on 4th March 2021
Now, more than ever, it is important for us all to consider our mental health due to the pressures arising from our enforced lock down and all the other effects of Covid 19.
Here are some free things you can access:
The Faith & Spirituality Team are offering a 40-minute mindfulness session for students and staff. Part theory, part practice, it will give you a chance to try meditation, plus gain some insight into why it is so beneficial. The session will be on Teams on Thurs 4 March (1.10pm – 1.50pm) and you can drop in with this code: 173qebn. Please turn up early so you can get yourself settled before the session begins.
One of the things that helps with our mental health is physical health. Just doing something to release those endorphins can make us all feel better.
Sport Brighton have just launched a Stepping Through March Challenge where you can win prizes for logging as many steps as possible during March, quick steps or slow steps, it doesn’t matter as long as you are moving and beware you may find logging steps addictive!
Even just going for a short walk, getting some fresh air and daylight to recharge our batteries and Vitamin D and taking some time away from a screen is really beneficial and we feel rebalanced without even trying.
Very often money issues can affect our mental health, and, taking this into account, some time ago now the Student Advice Service issued a Money and Mental Health Guide. Some entries may be slightly out of date but the principles are the same and it is definitely worth a read.
So have a Happy Day everyone and remember we may not be on campus but the Student Advice Service is just an email away for any queries …..firstname.lastname@example.org
