Wellbeing Training

The Students’ Union organises and delivers a range of workshops designed to support student wellbeing on campus.


Resilience Skills Training

Emotional resilience is a major defence against developing mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. University life can be incredibly challenging, and equipping students with the necessary skills to protect their mental health in times of adversity is essential.

This training explores what resilience is, why it is important and gives all participants the skills to build and improve their emotional resilience.

Suicide Prevention Training

Three quarters of all people who end their own lives are not in contact with mental health services or support within the year leading up to their death. There are many barriers to asking for help - including fear of rejection, not knowing how to access appropriate help, fear of the consequences on personal relationships and the negative impact on university careers.

There are also substantial barriers to helping someone at increased risk of suicide - not identifying the signs, not knowing what to say, fear of making things worse and not knowing how to help are often mentioned as reasons why someone didn't take action.

This training explores practical actions that can be taken to reduce the risk of suicide, potential signs that someone may be at risk and how to effectively link others to help.

Bystander Intervention Training

One third of female students at UK Universities will experience sexual assault or abuse while studying, while an eighth of men experience unwanted sexual advances. Working with Welsh Women’s Aid we will host a training and awareness course for Aberystwyth University students taking place over three consecutive weeks.

This training will help students recognise sexual harassment and abuse, and give them the skills and confidence to respond appropriately. I also looks at changing cultural norms that condone sexism and harassment.
