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.

Talk and listen, be there, feel connected

Embrace new experiences, see opportunities, surprise yourself

Remember the simple things that give you joy

Do what you can, enjoy what you do, move your mood

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.
