Mental Health Awareness Week – Five Ways to Wellbeing and support on campus

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week in Aotearoa New Zealand, which is all about focusing on our wellbeing and making sure we’re looking after ourselves.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing are five simple yet proven actions you can use every day to help you find balance, build resilience and boost your wellbeing.

Embrace new experiences, see opportunities, surprise yourself

TAKE NOTICE / ME ARO TONU
Remember the simple things that give you joy

BE ACTIVE / ME KORI TONU
Do what you can, enjoy what you do, move your mood

GIVE / TUKUA
Your time, your words, your presence

Support on campus
If you’d like to talk to someone about life at UC, getting help with course work, a personal matter or you just need someone to talk to, there is a range of free support available on campus.

A sense of belonging for all

Many of you will be aware of the political situation in Hong Kong. Sometimes global events impact on our students here at UC. This is a reminder that we want all students to feel that they belong to the wider UC community.

At UC we are committed to academic freedom and freedom of speech. While people have different opinions on a matter, they must express those opinions in a way that respects the rights and views of others. Without exception the University will not tolerate racism or harassment of any kind.

If you witness racist behaviour at any time you can choose to take action if you feel comfortable to do so, or you can report what you have seen by using the Report It tool or you can ring Security on 0800 823 637.
