What's on and support for your wellbeing at Kent.

Boost your wellbeing at Kent.

Throughout the year, there is lots of support available for you at Kent, across all campuses.

In March, Student Minds invited us all to celebrate University Mental Health day, and here at Kent we've had lots of events such as pets as therapy, mindful colouring, free book swaps and plant giveaways to remind people to nurture themselves and connect to each other to boost mental health as we head into exam season. 

Check out what's coming up next, and follow @UniKentSSW on Instagram for the latest.
