News and events for University of Brighton students

World Mental Health Day

University can be a big transition, whether you’re new to Brighton or a returning student. We hope you’re having a great time, but it’s not uncommon to feel a bit stressed or overwhelmed. This World Mental Health Day on 10 October, we want to take the opportunity to highlight the resources and services here to support your wellbeing all year round.

If you ever have a problem there are lots of ways we can help you:

Helping yourself and others

Wellbeing Champions is our online training course open to all students who want to learn more about building and maintaining their own wellbeing. You will also learn strategies for supporting your friends and loved ones with their mental health and gain an understanding of the best ways to communicate with and support those around you.

While it is a very difficult topic, we feel it is important for us to talk about suicide. Zero Suicide Alliance have put together this free online Suicide Awareness Training developed specifically for university students that includes information and scenarios that are related to experiences at university.

We have a range ofself-help resources, with guides written by our expert teams. You can also find details of helpfulexternal support services, includingTogetherall– your free 24/7 online support network.

Wellbeing Week is coming up from 13 -17 November, where you can expect a fun range of activities across our campuses from dog walks to social events – look out for more information coming soon!
