The University of Strathclyde is delighted to have committed to Scottish Student Sport’s Healthy Body Healthy Mind (HBHM).  

The project is designed to align and improve on the work institutions are doing around student and staff well-being. In receiving an Award, institutions demonstrate how they are encouraging sport and physical activity, a smoke-free culture and good mental health.  

Strathclyde has developed a working group combining key staff and student officers across the Students’ Union, Sports Union, and Strathclyde Sport

Kirsty Bannatyne (VP Sport) is involved in the working group, and said the following: "I am delighted to announce that Strathclyde Students’ Union, Strathclyde Sports Union, and Strathclyde Sport are working collaboratively on ‘Healthy Body Healthy Mind’, an initiative that supports colleges and universities in improving student and staff well-being and inspires positive changes across campus. Putting mental and physical health at the forefront of everything we do has never been more important, and I am excited to work with the team involved in the project for the benefit of all at the University of Strathclyde."

Currently the University has a whole host of initiatives around student and staff well-being such as StrathACTIVEExHALEHear to Listen, and many more!  We are excited at the prospect of collaborating further and getting creative with our links to HBHM.

Abby Irvine (Sport Development Coordinator) said “Committing to HBHM couldn’t come at a more pivotal time, as students and staff gradually return to campus following the pandemic. The Strathclyde community still face many barriers to the true University experience, so it’s important for us to do all we can to help improve the lifestyles of our community.”
