Promoting student wellbeing helps create a better overall experience for students, which ultimately benefits everyone. If students are able to find support, advice and information and to develop coping skills for life, they are more likely to continue with and be successful in their academic studies, enjoy their student experience and contribute more positively to student life.
There are 5 ways to wellbeing. Time and again, scientific studies have shown us that if we do the following five things listed below, happiness will increase.
Students - we would appreciate it if you could participate in this survey as this will help us to support your overall wellbeing which is vital during these challenging times.

Birmingham’s #you’vebeenmissed campaign is to support children and young people, parents and carers and professionals throughout the Covid pandemic.
As part of the campaign, Lydia Stafford, a Mental Health Nurse working in the Forward Thinking Birmingham’s early help team is leading 3 webinars to support parents. Lydia is passionate about supporting parents to maintain and strengthen relationships with their children, whilst being able to manage difficulties and challenges.
There are many transitions ahead for everyone moving slowly back into life after lockdown; Lydia would like to offer parents a webinar that explains why self- care as a parent at this time is a priority not only for their well-being but also in supporting and being “present” for their children during these transitions. Parents will also hear how the smallest acts to look after ourselves can make a significant difference. Lydia is also a parent to 3 children, she will be bringing aspects of both her personal and professional self to bring this concept across in a real, honest and connected way.
