Epigium - Being Well, Living Well

The Being Well Living well programme is a suite of online resources developed to help students develop confidence and skills to manage wellbeing issues that may arise for them. It is designed to support students understand that they are not alone in experiencing challenges in their academic and personal lives – whilst also providing guidance on supporting their friends, and signposting when and where to seek further support if needed.

The toolkit covers 4 main themes:

  1. Living Well
  2. Feeling Well
  3. Staying Safe
  4. Spending Well
Being Well, Living Well

The online programmes allow students to dip in and out of the themed resources at any time. It also contains resources and supports to help students overcome pressures and anxieties. Note: Blackboard login required to access the resources.
