Health & Wellbeing
Health and wellbeing are crucial ingredients of effective study as well as a rich and fulfilling student experience but staying well in body and mind isn’t always easy during these crucial formative years. We recognise that it’s much more difficult to learn and enjoy student life when practical and personal difficulties arise. At KCC we offer a range of services to support students personally and in their studies when these difficulties occur through our work with Early Help 4 Mental health (EH4MH) and Child and Adolescent Mental Health services (CAMHS).
We also understand that sometimes it’s hard to speak to someone about your wellbeing straight away, so we also recommend some self-help strategies. Using self-help materials can be an effective way to keep well by giving you the tools and confidence to overcome challenges by yourself, in your own time and at your own pace. Even when we are feeling relatively well, understanding self-help techniques for managing difficult thoughts and feelings can better prepare us for overcoming challenges in the future. Self-help materials can be accessed in a range of formats including books from the main library, websites such as Kooth.com and mobile phone apps such as Headspace and Calm.
