Our Counselling and Wellbeing team are here to offer advice and support during your time at ARU, but we understand there might be times when you don’t feel ready to talk and want to work on your wellbeing alone.
As well as our counsellors, mental health advisers and wellbeing advisers, you also have free access to the Feeling Good app.
Designed to help you build resilience and develop positive feelings, the Feeling Good app offers positive mental training audio programmes that you can complete anytime, anywhere.
The programme is trusted by doctors and nurses in the NHS and aims to lift your mood, help you sleep better and help you recover from stress, anxiety and depression.
The app is based on Olympic sports psychology and incorporates breathing techniques, positive reappraisal and visualisation techniques that you complete alongside specifically developed audio tracks.
If you're an ARU student, you can find details of how to log in to Feeling Good on My ARU: Digital wellbeing support.
