Supported Internship Students Share Their Success
Date: 10 May 2021
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, and the theme this year is ‘Nature’.
Over the past year, many of us have turned to nature as a source of respite, inspiration and healing. Nature is so important to our mental and physical health, and the Mental Health Foundation want to encourage everyone to #ConnectWithNature and take some time out away from other distractions.
The Mental Health Foundation want to challenge the ideas of who is and who isn’t able to experience nature and promote the idea that it is a resource that should be available to everyone.
Did you know?*
Whatever your lifestyle or location, there are little ways to connect with the natural world around you! Here are just a few ideas:
It is so important to take care of your own mental health and wellbeing, and here at East Surrey College, we’re committed to looking out for the welfare of our students and ensuring that support is available.
Our Wellbeing Hub is a new area of the site, full of resources for students and parents/carers. On this page, you can find contact details of our Safeguarding Team, useful websites and top tips for looking after your wellbeing.
Take Action, Get Active
Throughout the month of May, the Mental Health Foundation are encouraging you to take part in half an hour every day of outdoor exercise! Complete 30 minutes however you want – jogging, walking, skipping, whatever you feel like
It’s free to take part, so sign up to receive a fundraising pack and tips on how to make the most of your 30 minutes.
Don’t worry if you've missed 1 May, just complete 30 days from when you start!
