Bubbling Up - wellbeing blog

What is Bubbling Up?

Bubbling Up is a student and staff driven initiative to build a community where we take a shared responsibility for our wellbeing in the department. We will use the latest Student Minds Charter and community feedback to guide us in developing best practices and support structures, where student and staff wellbeing comes first.

Our Focus

Share wellbeing stories and experiences, and by doing so, address wellbeing challenges arising from studying and working in the Department of Chemistry, University of Warwick. We envision this resource to become a collection of voices, although primarily focused on short blogs curated by student editors, expressed in a range of formats. We welcome ideas, feedback and submissions from anyone and will not impose any restrictions other than around privacy and safeguarding of our community.

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to create a positive study and workplace wellbeing environment and a space for wellbeing conversations and contemplation.

We strive to build a community where wellbeing is a shared value and responsibility.

We treat everyone and every voice with respect and the right to remain anonymous.
