The Croft Magazine // The UoB Wellbeing Network works to ensure that students’ wellbeing needs are met by the university, as well as to raise awareness of mental health through campaigns and events.
The Network's main aims are to:
Promote good wellbeing by organising events and campaigns to raise awareness of different mental health problems. These include speaker events, giveaways, social activities, challenges, social media promotions, pub quizzes, showcases, gigs, demonstrations… get in touch if you or your society would like to hold an event as we would be very happy to support you!
Improve the processes and services that affect student wellbeing and mental health. We encourage all students to share their experiences and suggestions.
Increase awareness of the different mental health services available within and outside the university. If you have used a service outside the university which you think other students might find helpful, we would love to hear from you.
