Health and wellbeing
While university life is full of exciting opportunities, it can also be an overwhelming time. Here you can find information on a range of services provided by the University and throughout Edinburgh to support your physical and mental wellbeing.
Dear students and staff,
We have all had to change the way in which we live and work very quickly as a result of the coronavirus global pandemic, and it can be challenging to adjust to this. Many of the things we took for granted, for example getting up in the morning and leaving our homes to attend lectures or go to work, are no longer the same. Social distancing and home working mean we have less face to face contact with friends, colleagues and family- this can be really tough.
During these difficult and uncertain times, it is common to feel overwhelmed or anxious. We understand that many of you may have concerns about how this will impact you, your family and your friends. Please see the Covid19 FAQs for current students for information on managing your wellbeing.
This is not an exhaustive set of information- we’ll be adding to it as we find articles or information which we feel is helpful. And if you come across something which you feel other people within our community could benefit from, please email it to: Rebecca.Shade@ed.ac.uk
Make sure you look after yourself and those close to you.
