Health and Well-Being

We know that student life can be complicated and that academic study can be affected by lots of factors and pressures outside of University. At UWTSD we have a huge amount of additional resources and support available to help our students succeed, and we are investing in and growing this area of support all of the time.

We offer comprehensive mental health support via our Counselling Unit and through our Mental Health Advisers. These services are supported by access to additional self-help resources through TogetherAll and the Feeling Good app. 

Within these pages, we have guides and tips relating to student health, sexual health, mental health and issues such as housing, safeguarding and equality and diversity.

This is also the home of our Connect Project, a peer support project we run in partnership with Swansea University focused on student well-being.
