During the COVID-19 pandemic, two-thirds of young people in the UK have reported a deterioration in their mental health during the lockdownStudents from Southwark College have responded to this by setting up a weekly wellness club to improve students’ mental health.

The club will meet every Wednesday from 12.30 - 12:45pm virtually, with each lunchtime session providing students with a safe space where they can focus on their mental health and practice mindfulness techniques, such as breathing exercises, mediation and using positive affirmations to help studentscope with the impact the lockdown can cause on their mental health. 

Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College, said: "In these challenging times, student wellbeing has never been more important. We hope that the introduction of Wellbeing Wednesdays will support our students' mental health throughout their College life and encourage them to access the support services available to them should they need it.

If you are studying at Southwark College and would like to join the Wellbeing Wednesday session, or need further information about any of the support services available, please contact the Student Services team on This email address is being protected from spambots.
