Active Students Wellbeing Programme

 

Being active is not only great for our physical health but also our mental health. Research suggests that becoming more active can:

  • Lift your mood
  • Enhance concentration
  • Build confidence
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Help to make social connections
  • Boost overall wellbeing
     

Active Students know that taking the first steps to become more active can be difficult, so we are here to support you on your journey. Please read all the information below to make sure this programme is right for you.


What is it?

Active Students have partnered with UH Student Wellbeing to bring you one-to-one student-led support, giving you the confidence to become involved in life at Herts.

Sessions are tailored to you, at times that suit you. They are always confidential*, and our team of Wellbeing Activators** all endure specific training to ensure both your safety and theirs.

You would meet up with an Activator twice a week, for four weeks, where you can work together to determine what you would like to get out of the programme. You can walk, roller-skate, cycle, the choice is yours! We are with you every step of the way.

Best of all, it's FREE! We are committed to providing free, on campus support to all students at UH. 

*If we believe you are at risk to yourself or others, only the necessary information will be shared on a must-know basis.

**Our team of Wellbeing Activators are not qualified therapists/councillors, but they are there as a person to talk to in a non-medical, non-invasive setting.


What we do

We do our best to pair you up with one of our Activators who has similar interests and availability. If you are unhappy with your pairing, we are more than happy to review this with you - please just say. 


Our Team

The Wellbeing Activators are carefully selected for this programme. They have a variety of interests and availability between them, and so we have every confidence that we can find the right one for you.
