Acquire the skills, strategies and support to find a happier, healthier you

Meditation and mindfulness have been shown to help people reduce stress, improve focus and sleep more soundly. We are collaborating with UK Student Success to give you free access through March 10, 2025 to an evidence-based app called Headspace. It can improve your mental, emotional and social health.
