Sunday 10 October is World Mental Health Day and we’d like to take this opportunity to highlight some of the health and wellbeing tools available to you at DMU.

HealthyDMU

The Healthy DMU Hub brings together information on a range of health and wellbeing-boosting activities. You can have some great fun, and maybe even try things you’ve never considered. From registering with a GP to information on our DSU societies, there’s something for everyone.

You can hear about the benefits of volunteering and how participating in programmes such as DMU Global, DMUsport and DMU Music can support mental wellbeing by connecting with others, being active or continuing to learn new skills.

Our Student Welfare Team run regular mindfulness sessions and Healthy DMU Masterclasses on topics such as Emotional Awareness and Resilience, Personal Productivity and Performing under Pressure. 

These sessions, held in the Zen Zone, will be face-to-face for the first time in 18 months. You can book your place through the Healthy DMU Hub.

Single Point of Access (SPA) Appointment

Single Point of Access appointments last 45-minutes and are dedicated to discussing your situation with a member of our Wellbeing team.

You’ll be offered advice and referral/signposting to relevant support staff from DMU or other appropriate agencies and given an action plan of what to do next. You can book an appointment via MyGateway.
