Mental Health Awareness Week

We are super excited to release the schedule for Mental Health Awareness Week this year. Although most of our activities are taking place online this year, there are plenty of different ways you can get involved and support your wellbeing. This year’s campaign theme is Nature, we recommend this guide which has some great tips on how you can get in touch with nature to improve your wellbeing.  

If you are around on either the Uxbridge or High Wycombe campus then we'll be running a 'Positivi-tree' throughout the week where you can come along and leave a positive affirmations for yourself, or a positive thought for someone else. 

On Wednesday 12 May, join your Vice President Education and Welfare, Tash Neal, for a virtual tea and natter about anything you like! It doesn’t need to be mental health focused either, it's just a great opportunity to have a break from your studies to have a chat and meet some new students. 

We'll also be bringing back our Honest Hours with your Executive Officers, so if you're an International or Part Time student, come along and have a chat where you can speak freely with other students like you, about your experience at Bucks and both the positive and negative experiences so far. With no staff involved, this really is a chance to be as open as you like. 

There is also the opportunity to try out new things! We have lots of sessions including, MeditationMindfulnessYoga and Litter Picking. Get out in some fresh air and find some time to become one with nature. 

Your mental health and wellbeing is our priority and that’s why we created our own dedicated Mental Health and Wellbeing Resources page on our website which you can read here
