Showcasing student mental health and wellbeing journeys

Mental illness can significantly affect a person’s cognitive, emotional and social functioning. But the full spectrum of mental health is also about helping you to feel your best, cope with stressful situations and contribute to your community, whatever your personal situation.

With research showing that people with hobbies are less likely to suffer from low moods, stress and depression, dedicating some regular time to activities you enjoy can really help to improve your mental health and wellbeing.
