Therapeutic running Group

The team under took the project to help students with depression/anxiety/stress to manage their mental healthy by focusing on the benefits and the joy of walking/running in nature. The group provided support for students to embed walking/running as a way of life by combining a counselling approach with a structured ‘couch-to-5km’ programme.

The project included Professional Services, Academic staff and students and was led by Student Wellbeing. Over 20 students took part with great success.
