Emotional and Mental Health

Anyone can experience thoughts and feelings that are distressing or affect their ability to concentrate on their work or studies. We are here to support you.

Get in touch with the team at wellbeing@sunderland.ac.uk or call us at 0191 515 2933 if you are struggling, you can also submit a refferal form into our service via our online form. 

We have also partnered with a few online 24/7 services you can access as a student, read more about them on our page here and think about signing up. They offer modules to work through, online journals and goal setters or just a space to talk to someone. 

Ways you can maintain positive emotional and mental health

- Reaching out when you need it
Contact your trusted family or friends and ask for support, access our service by submitting a referral form or using the online 24/7 support available.

- Focus on positives in your life
Create a journal where you note down something positive each day. Don’t spend all your energy on worrying on the negatives or things you can’t control.

- Getting physically active,
Even a short 10-20-minute walk can help you. Think about cleaning up your room or following an online exercise video. You do not need to start a full fitness plan if that feels overwhelming.

- Helping others, thinking about volunteering.
Check the Student Union volunteering opportunities and get involved.

- Connecting with others.
The SU has a range of societies you can sign up to and meet new people, check what is available. If your interest isn’t there you can make your own society by contacting the Students Union directly.

You can also sign up for an SU Buddy, read more here.

Finally, think about attending the Friendship Evening every Wedbesdat at 7:00 pm, email chris.howson@sunderland.ac.uk to join in.
