Wednesday 1 March 3pm-5pm – Social Pressure
Starting University can come with a host of new social challenges and can test our sense of belonging. In this workshop we will explore what it means to belong and discuss feelings of isolation and social anxiety, how it feels and what we can do to support each other through it.
Wednesday 8 March 3pm-5pm – Financial Pressure
Managing money, often for the first time, can be a shock, and is one of the biggest sources of worry for many of us. In this workshop we will look at budgeting, where to go if you need support or advice, how money impacts our mental health and strategies for staying mentally healthy while looking after your finances.
Wednesday 15 March 3pm-5pm – Academic Pressure
Most of us will feel stress linked to study, whether it is exams, coursework or pressure about a future career. This has never been more true than when going through a global pandemic. This workshop explores why we feel stress and how we can manage it more effectively.
