Part of your self-development at University is developing self-care skills. Learning to look after yourself is something we facilitate with a number of free online resources which you can explore in your own time from the comfort of your home, or your pocket! These resources are commonly referred to by CMH staff as well as staff working in the NHS and other organisations. These resources, along with student support services, are all part of what you pay for as a student at Middlesex, so make sure that you use them!
Don’t forget to explore the holistic wellness advice and guidance found on the health and wellbeing pages of UniHub which can also be used independently for self-care or in conjunction with more formalised support to help look after your wellbeing. Find topics on UniHub around substance use, nutrition, sleep hygiene and more.
