Easter Vacation Support Services

Dear Students,

We hope you are ok. We understand this is an anxious time with exams and the continuation of lockdown restrictions.  Many of you might be feeling under pressure so we just wanted to remind you we are here to support you through this time.

As we move from “stay at home” to “stay local” restrictions, it is important to take regular breaks and if possible, get some fresh air. Being out in daylight and in nature can have a very positive effect on your mood and can be very grounding if you feel anxious.

If you need urgent support during the Easter break, you can contact our Campus Security Team directly on 01413304444 and you will be able to speak to someone immediately.

There are also a number of support services available to you:

  • All students have access to Togetherall, a safe space online to get things off your chest and learn how to improve and manage your mental health and wellbeing.
  • You can self-refer to Counselling and Psychological Services (CaPS) via their website for one-on-one support.
  • Peer Wellbeing Support (available in many schools and colleges with more to join soon) is a confidential, student-led listening service, where you can speak to trained peers on issues such as anxiety, stress, isolation or loneliness.
  • The Students’ Representative Council have created the Look After Yourself Guide and an Isolation Toolkit to offer help all students with mental health and wellbeing.

UofG Sport have many virtual classes available everyday – if you would like to take an online class. Exercise is also important to your mental health and wellbeing.

A reminder that the UofG SafeZone App is monitored 24 hours a day by the UofG Security team – whether it be on campus, at halls or anywhere in between. 

We hope you enjoy the Easter weekend.

Take care,

Team UofG
