COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions

Students should also regularly check the University COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions pages for updates on information relating to the outbreak and your academic studies.

Maintaining your wellbeing

There are also many things that we can do to support and manage our own wellbeing during these times. You may find the following resources useful:

MIND and the Mental Health Foundation have created helpful guides to support individuals to maintain their health and wellbeing during the Coronavirus outbreak. These resources highlight the importance of considering the impact that our daily routine, environment, activity levels, nutrition, social interaction and self-care habits can have on our overall quality of life during this difficult period of adjustment.

All members of the Strathclyde community can access NHS Mental Health self-help booklets, video and audio resources based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques on the Glasgow Wellbeing Services website. These engaging self-help resources provide psycho-educational information, techniques to challenge unhelpful thinking patterns and practical techniques to improve our mental health and wellbeing.

Students are also encouraged to explore SilverCloud our online CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) e-learning platform https://www.strath.ac.uk/wellbeing/stressandmentalhealth/self-help/ .
