Disability & Wellbeing Service COVID-19 Update
Your Wellbeing over the Festive Break
We understand that this time of year can be tough for students and feelings of loneliness, anxiety, isolation, and homesickness can worsen. We hope that the Holiday Wellbeing Leaflet 2020 can give you some hints and tips to manage your wellbeing duringthis difficult time. Don't forget that we are here to support you. There is support available throughout the holiday period for your mental health & wellbeing. To get advice and wellbeing support over the festive break, please visit the Strathclyde Seasons Greatings Support webpage.
We recognise that the Coronavirus pandemic is affecting the way we all live our lives, and while it is normal to feel overwhelmed about the situation, there are many things that we can do to support and manage our own wellbeing during these times. We have developed the Self-Help section of our Mental Health and Wellbeing page to include resources focussed on maintaining and improving your wellbeing. 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 period of adjustment.
COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions
We understand and appreciate you will have many questions on different aspects of life at Strathclyde in the coming semester and so encourage you to review our new FAQs online on our Return and Resume Hub. Alongside the Student FAQ's you can find videos providing a taster for the preparation and developments that are underway to support our planned approach for online and blended delivery. This supplements our Pledge to students, and the details on Campus Life 2020.
