It’s nearly Christmas! Whilst it’s easy to get swept up in the festivities and look forward to the break, it’s also a time to remember to look after yourself and your well-being, as it can be a stressful time – with the first set of deadlines and exams start approaching, and the second lot of student loan still a few weeks away! But fear not, the well-being service at Edge Hill is brilliant, and will help you deal with everything from the smallest of concerns to bigger matters.
Like the Careers Centre (as written about last week), the Well Being team is based in the Student Information Centre (SIC) and also in Milton House – a Uni partnered counselling service just off campus.
The well-being team can deal with issues to do with stress, anxiety, general worries, low mood/depression, sexual health, diet and exercise and course issues, amongst other things. It is also a great place to go if you feel like you just need to talk to someone for a while.
If further assistance is required, Milton House offers a confidential and professional counselling service which is available to all at Edge Hill, and is within walking distance of the Ormskirk campus.
Although all of the staff in the SIC are super friendly and will do anything they can to answer your questions – they understand that walking in to the centre and talking to a stranger straight away isn’t in everybody’s comfort zone – you can contact them through email, telephone, or through the Let Us Know system – which allows you to contact the team online about either yourself or someone you have concerns about. All the details are available on the Edge Hill website – linked here.
