World Wellbeing Week

World Wellbeing Week

It’s World Wellbeing Week from 26 June – 2 July 2023, but talking about mental health and wellbeing is important all year round. Life at university is exciting, though it can have its challenges, so we want you to know about all of the resources and support available to you.

As we approach the end of term, take the time to wind down or take a break if you’re still studying or researching and get involved in a variety of events and activities on campus - from yoga and mindfulness sessions, to walks across campus, the chance to win free sports passes with Warwick Sport, and Warwick Arts Centre workshops.

Read on to see tips from Wellbeing and Student Support and profiles from our Warwick community about looking after your wellbeing. You’ll also see information about the range of support available to you.

To access support at Warwick, please visit Wellbeing and Student Support via our Wellbeing Portal, where our teams are ready to support and work with you to develop the personal resources and skills you need to navigate the challenges and opportunities of student life.

If you’re a member of staff at Warwick, take a look at our Staff Wellbeing Hub, where you can find a programme of support sessions and resources to help look after your physical and emotional wellbeing.
