Student & Staff mental health and wellbeing is everyone’s responsibility. In recent years we have made significant improvements in support & resources for students & staff, but we have much more to do.
Over the next number of months, we will work alongside you – our students & staff – to co-create our #QUBeWell Framework.

I began to reflect on how phrases like “man up” and “big boys don’t cry” impact men’s mental health.
All sorts of things than can affect someone’s mental health and wellbeing, or trigger a problem
It's important that we have a strong culture of Wellbeing at Queen's, so that our staff & students can feel well and listened to
I've always been a fan of the outdoors, but getting to show the connection with positive mental health to others has been a fantastic bonus
Student-led initiatives such as Mind Your Mood serve a huge purpose in addressing the stigma surrounding mental health
Choosing themes that are important and relevant to you
The #QUBeWell Team have identified four main themes for the 2022/23 academic year that are based on a combination of our four key pillars, and what is important to our students' wellbeing at this time. These are:
1. Suicide Prevention.
2. Building a Sense of Community, Belonging & Identity.
3. Cost of Living Crisis.
4. Training & Awareness-Raising.
