19th May from 2-3pm: Paws Against Stress Wellbeing Event

GCU Student Wellbeing are delighted to invite students to meet with the lovely therapets and volunteers from the Canine Concern Scotland Trust. We encourage you to take a short break and look after your own wellbeing, by joining us at this event on Wednesday 19th May from 2pm.

Sign up to join a small group of 4 students for a 10 minute session. This is your chance for some quality time with one of these very clever dogs. This event will be offered through MS Teams and you will be assigned to a break-out room with a volunteer and dog, on the day.

During the session, you will also have the option to chat with the volunteer to find out more about the life with a therapet.

Spotlight On..Mental health and Covid-19

Are you interested in learning more about the impacts of Covid-19 on our mental health and delivery of local support provisions?

Underpinned by our whole community approach, and supported by sector research, GCU have launched the Spotlight On…series. The series aims to shine a light on mental health and factors that influence our mental wellbeing, to create a more open, inclusive and proactive culture, encourage greater engagement with available support, and curate accessible and sustainable mental health and wellbeing resources.

Our first event will consider how the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted on our mental health and wellbeing, through an authentic discussion with a panel of sector and academic experts followed by a question-and-answer session open to all. The event will be accompanied by a brief introductory video and access to some relevant training and support resources for those wishing to engage further with each series topic.
