November 19th is International Men's Day, a day to focus on men's mental health and wellbeing  

Everybody has mental health. Knowing how to best support your own wellbeing and when to reach out can help build good mental health whilst at uni. Moving your body, connecting with others and taking part in enjoyable activities are some ways to build better mental health. This article will highlight activities you can get involved with this month and beyond, as well as support services available for you...

If you are struggling with your mental health, you can access support from BCU's Mental Health and Wellbeing Team. They're available to anyone with wellbeing concerns, Monday - Friday from 9am - 5pm. Contact them to find out more or book an appointment.
