Health and well-being fortnight a fantastic success

Staff and students took part in the health and well-being fortnight across all campuses to promote positive well-being and mental health.

The college hosted a variety of activities on health and well-being such as fitness challenges, meditation and yoga sessions, mindfulness sessions, brew Monday, staff seafront walks, healthy food demonstrations and sport activities. 

There were also cross campus health fairs where exhibitors from the local community provided freebies, resources and guidance on positive well-being and promoted their services to students and staff. 

The well-being fortnight was in response to the national ‘Time to Talk’ campaign which encourages more people to come together to talk and promote good mental health.

Jane Belcher, Head of Valiant and Safeguarding, said: “The health and well-being fortnight has been a great success at the college with so many activities taking place across the sites for students and staff.”

“What has been a great legacy from this fortnight is the enthusiasm of our staff to keep these sessions going for the benefit of students and staff.”
