Move, Feet & Mind (TRG)

Purpose of the proposed group
Following on from the success of the TRG programme which helped students manage their mental health by focusing on the benefits and the joy of walking/running in nature. The group will continue to provide support for students by helping to embed walking/running as a way of life by combining a counselling approach with a structured couch to 5 km programme. The group will make connections with staff and students to further roll out the programme across the University.

Objectives of the proposed group

  • Increase the ability of students to improve and maintain their mental health.
  • Explore other areas to pilot the programme.
  • Provide the opportunity for staff and students to develop social, volunteering, leadership and life skills.
  • Work with areas to explore link ups with other wellbeing initiatives.
