Wellbeing Wednesday – NUIT

Support over Christmas

The Students’ Union will be running virtual events over the festive period for students to participate in. You can find out more at https://www.nusu.co.uk/whatson/events/. The university is currently planning the support for students who are not travelling home during the Christmas break, and further information will be added to the university FAQs.

Over the winter closure period students can still receive support for health and wellbeing. The Student Health and Wellbeing Service provide a number of online options which are available 24/7. These include:

  • Talk Campus (mental health and peer support)
  • Silvercloud (online CBT programmes)
  • iNCLude app (ideas and support to maintain good wellbeing)

In addition, students needing support over the winter break are invited to email pastoral.support@ncl.ac.uk.
