You will be working with up to 20 fellow students in a group setting, facilitated by a University mental health and wellbeing practitioner.


We are offering five workshops which will run between November 2017 and April 2018. In order to fully benefit from the workshops we encourage you to attend all five. There is no charge. The first workshop will be announced soon!


To be confirmed- watch this space! Refreshment and snacks will be provided.


We will ask you to rate your perceptions of your own resilience and coping skills before you participate and then again at the end of the programme. We want you to develop practical skills for University life and we'd like to find out how well this programme works for you! We'll share all results with you and you won't ever be identifiable from summary reports. Taking party in the research element of the programme is optional.
