Positive Minds – peer support sessions


attending a seminar 714x249

Positive Minds is an initiative run by Student Minds, the UK’s Student Metal Health charity. It offers peer support and aims to empower students to lead positive university lives.

University is an exciting and invigorating experience but it can also – at times – be stressful. Positive Minds offers peer support sessions for students, covering topics such as building a support network, establishing healthy routines and exploring different relaxation techniques.

The group provides a non-judgemental, confidential and supportive space for you to share your worries, hear how others may have overcome these challenges, and receive individualised signposting to professional services. The group also offers access to a number of helpful resources.

Positive Minds is open to all and welcomes students with low mood, mild depression, or those who are simply interested in self-help. The programme runs throughout the semester and students can join at any point during the programme.

This year’s sessions will take place at the following locations and dates:

University Park Campus:

  • When? Tuesdays, 6.30-8pm (except during exam times)
  • Where? LG9, Trent Building
  • When is the first session? Tuesday 1 January 2018

Sutton Bonington Campus:

  • When? Mondays, 6.30-8pm (except during exam times)
