Starting university is an exciting time, but it can also be daunting. With moving to a new city, making friends, or the stresses of essays and exams, sometimes you just need a helping hand. This is where KCLSU Wellbeing comes in. We have a dedicated team to make sure you thrive during your time at university, and beyond!
KCLSU Wellbeing has put together all kinds of ways to keep your wellbeing in check - be it online resources, events, and even positive peers - scroll down to find out all about what KCLSU Wellbeing can do for you, and how you can get involved!
The Wellbeing Hub
The Wellbeing Hub is our permanent online resource for all things wellbeing. We introduce the King’s 5 Ways to Wellbeing along with Wellbeing Templates and a Support Cinema. It’s a great place to start if you’re wanting to learn more about looking after your health and wellbeing or need some support.
KCLSU Wellbeing also run events throughout the year such as Wellbeing Week or the exam wellbeing initiative Take Time Out (or Take Time In). These events are often led by or in collaboration with students as we think you know your peers best! We look forward to seeing you at future events, including our famous Doggy Daybreak sessions!
The Positive Peers are students trained to help fellow students to thrive through creating student-only spaces where we support and learn from each other.
Through health promotion and support, the Positive Peers are a key component of KCLSU Wellbeing and contribute to our community's commitment to improve student mental health and wellbeing. Follow us on Instagram @positive.peers
Black Students Talk
Black Students Talk (BST) is a peer support group that provides safe, supportive and therapeutic spaces for Black students to meet, share, learn, and manage their mental health & wellbeing at King’s College London. BST is part of the national Black People Talk (BPT), an initiative founded by Yannick Yalipende and Nkasi Stoll that aims to support the mental health and wellbeing of the Black community in the UK.
These are 20 minute chats between first year students and a member of the Positive Peers. It’s great to have a friendly face around campus, be able to ask any questions and to check that you have everything sorted that needs to be sorted (e.g. registering with a GP, accommodation).
Booking isn’t open yet but it will be bookable through this link.
