Health & Wellbeing
Physical and Mental Wellbeing
The wellbeing of our members and the student community is important to us. We all have mental health and wellbeing and there are many everyday things we can do to support our wellbeing.
University can be a busy time, which can make it harder for you to take the time to look after your mental wellbeing. When you’re busy, stresses can mount up and really take their toll - so it’s important to take the time to prioritise your own mental wellbeing.
At Strathclyde specifically, we offer various support services to help you with your physical and mental wellbeing. Check out our Wellbeing Map for more information on what the services offer, and where you can find them:
A safe campus is everyone’s responsibility: staff, students and visitors. We all have a responsibility to report if someone’s safety has been threatened, whether that is through inappropriate behaviour, verbal or physical harassment, or other actions that make them feel unsafe, for example threatening posters, stickers or graffiti.
Please report, even if you think you don’t have enough information for us to take action immediately.
Report & Support
There are also external resources we would recommend utilising:
The Scottish Association for Mental Health has various useful resources such as the 5 Ways of Wellbeing, and the SAMH Wellbeing Assessment tool to check in on yourself and monitor how you are feeling
