The Wellbeing Toolkit
This toolkit has been created to provide you with practical advice, resources, tips, self-assessment tools, and activities to develop resilience and encourage positive mental health.
What has been our approach?
Our approach has been to develop this toolkit as a system to aid stress reduction and grow resilience in individuals to reduce barriers to achievement. It can also help you create and implement positive changes in your life.
The wellbeing toolkit teaches you to recognise your own stress cycles and when your stress is helping or harming you. You can choose from a menu of quick, effective stress-reduction tools and build your new skills into deep, lasting habits that effect powerful transformation over time.
What is mental wellbeing?
Mental wellbeing is a part of our overall health. It doesn’t have one set meaning, so we might use it to talk about how we feel, how well we're coping, or what feels possible at the moment.
Poor mental wellbeing can often make it more difficult to cope with the ups and downs of daily life, but it’s important to note that good mental wellbeing doesn't mean you're always happy or unaffected by your experiences.
Why use this toolkit?
The wellbeing toolkit can help strengthen your self-awareness and coping mechanisms so that your academic performance or everyday life isn’t negatively affected by the challenges you face. It may reduce the following negative cyclical process that occurs, which can result in poor mental wellbeing. This might include stress, low mood, depression, irritability, feelings of worthlessness, poor appetite, and lack of sleep, all of which impact our mind and physical body.Open Toolkit
