We’re here to help with all aspects of life at university, from academic support to representation. We're rolling out a number of Priority Campaigns dedicated to supporting our students. If you have a campaign in mind, get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student Mental Health Campaign Work
Mental Health comes in all shapes and sizes, from being stressed about an exam, and anxiety over meeting new people and a new environment, to ongoing mental health conditions.
1 in 4 people experience a mental health issue whereas, only 1 in 8 people access support for their mental health concerns.
Harper Adams Students Union takes mental health seriously and is working to tackle the issues our students are facing at the university. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you about the support which is available to Harper Adams Students as well as some wellbeing activities which anyone can take part in. The student’s union will support a number of mental health campaigns throughout the year, as well as holding a number of activities during the Mental Health Awareness Week in May. This campaign is being launched on 10th October – World Mental Health Day.
Dealing with Exam Stress
It is perfectly normal to feel stressed in the lead up to or during exams. This can actually be of benefit as it motivates you, and helps you to complete tasks more efficiently as well as boosting your memory.
Unsurprisingly, revision and being prepared for your exams is the best way to reduce anxiety. Ahead of an exam, try to keep things in perspective and make sure you:
- Take regular breaks
- Get some sleep
- Eat well
- Stay hydrated
- Keep active
- Schedule in some relaxation time
