University Mental Health and Wellbeing Day, Thursday 7 March

This year there are events at all our campuses promoting ‘self-care’ and how the university can support you with this. We encourage all students and staff to take a look to see what’s on, and come along on the day and get involved.

There are a wide range of talks, workshops, information stands, #ActiveGRE sporting activities, experiences and treatments and more.

The majority of activities are taking place between 12-5pm, but some events take place either side of this, from early morning to evening – from A spectacular Springtime Dawn Chorus at Avery Hill to an evening Zumba class at Medway.

Some events require booking in advance, these include a STAART Holistic Wellbeing workshop, Mindfulness workshops, Positive Psychology workshops, a Sleep workshop and a Tai Chi workshop.

You’ll also be able to find out more about The Resilience Enhancement Programme for Students from Dr Oliver Robinson, whose department here at Greenwich has been developing a programme to support and boost resilience in students (booking required).

Director Bill Waterson said the move was “a big statement” and “a small moment of football history”.

Saturday’s home match against Bradford (Park Avenue) ended in a 1-1 draw.  More
