    I want to know more about self-care


    Self-care is different for us all. Often self-care is a combination of several routines and habits that you may need to adjust through your time as a student. We tend to think of self-care as one-off events like resting, having a relaxing evening, doing some exercise or listening to some music. And while these can be self-care, the most effective self-care will be a combination of sustainable, long term routines that help to keep you well. Self-care can also be things that we don’t often think of, like setting boundaries, recognising toxic relationships, and saying ‘no’ to things that don’t bring us joy.

    If you aren’t sure how to get started, spend some time exploring UniHub and read these 19 self-care ideas from Save the Student.

    Student Health Guide

    The Student Health Guide gives a great introduction to self-care, managing your health, and gives you information on MDX and MDXSU support available to keep you thriving.

    Wellbeing apps and platforms

    There are a number of wellbeing apps and platforms that MDX has invested in to support you to look after your wellbeing.

    Miindset is an app which has been made free for university students. It is designed to help you manage your mental health and wellbeing by giving you tailored mental health and wellbeing content thanks to the Miindset Wellness Checker and clever AI. You can take your personalised support with you anywhere, with zero wait time, whenever you need it.

    All these apps and platforms can be used independently to help you to stay feeling at your best through your time at MDX, or in conjunction with formal therapeutic support. Find out more about the platforms and how to access them.
