Mental Health

There is no health without mental health.

We all have mental health, sometimes it’s great and sometimes it’s not so great. When we have poor mental health it impacts on every aspect of daily living and can make simple tasks seem like mission impossible.

Thankfully there has been a recent openness when talking about mental health, its issues and impacts, underpinned by household names being honest about their own experiences. This has helped to normalise mental health as a part of general health and made it more acceptable and support has become more accessible.

Here at Unipol we understand the stressors associated with the move to University. It is a major life change and can be the best thing you ever do. For some people it can be simply overwhelming.

We also understand how the environment can play a significant part in maintaining good mental health, therefore it is important that your accommodation and the relationships with your co tenants are a positive influence.

At Unipol the Tenancy Support & Wellbeing Coordinator is trained as a Mental Health First Aider and is the lead coordinator for mental health issues at Unipol.

If you are feeling worried, anxious or scared or just feeling that you are not coping well you can contact the Tenancy Support & Wellbeing Coordinator or Student Services at your institution

If you are concerned about someone else’s mental health you can contact the Tenancy Support & Wellbeing Coordinator, who will ask you to put this in writing. The Tenancy Support & Wellbeing Coordinator will contact you to discuss your concerns and may ask for further information.
