Here in the Wellbeing team at the University, we know that mental health is as important as physical health.

We take our students health, wellbeing and career prospects seriously. As we know, as you do, that students need to be healthy and happy in order to fulfill their potential. 

For Stress Awareness Month, we want to make you aware of an online service that will provide tools to manage stress and bring balance into your life.

Space from Stress is a programme that consists of seven modules. These can be completed in your own time and at your own pace over approximately eight weeks.

If you require immediate or urgent help please contact your local GP or your community support services, you can find these details on the Find Help page. 

To sign-up to Space from Stress, you will have to complete 2 short questionnaires that will allow us to help you, this will take two minutes.
