» Mental Health Awareness week

Monday 14th May. This year the focus is on stress.

Stress is not a mental health problem in itself, but it is a key cause of mental health problems like depression and anxiety and is often linked to self-harm and suicide.
Stress is also known to lead to physical health problems like muscle and joint pain and cardiovascular problems.

Spotting the signs of stress early is crucial to enabling us to manage it and ensuring it isn’t allowed to develop into a more serious problem.

Why not take the stress test, designed using the evidence-based perceived stress scale?

Take the stress test and see how you’re doing

Anxiety workshops are also being held on all campuses next week
Tues 15th May Newport and at the ATRiuM
Thurs 17th May Treforest and Glyntaff

see UniLife Connect to book a place on any of the workshops
