Trinity Wellbeing, Embedding Student Wellbeing and Resilience into the HE Curriculum

Our student wellbeing pillars:

 

Self-Awareness

Identifying and managing emotions, as well as overcoming emotions that may lead to mental and emotional instability.

Resilience

Ability to mentally and emotionally cope with academic pressures, personal challenges and adapting to university life.

 

 Self-Regulation

Creating a stronger connection to self through intrinsic self-development and intrinsic motivation.

Individual Sustainability

Ability to live a healthy lifestyle that includes a high level of awareness in regard to one's values, thoughts and behaviours.

 

 

 Introducing  Individual Sustainability and Student Resilience 

We believe that individual sustainability and student resilience can only be achieved by having higher education invest in students’ personal development, their personalities, their values, morals, behaviours and emotions. Since the main purpose of education is to educate individuals within society, to prepare and qualify them for work in the economy, as well as to integrate people in society and teach them values and morals of society, we believe it is time higher education invests in student resilience and personal development skills by having student's mental and emotion needs embedded into the curriculum.

As much as professional success and knowledge for career life is imperative for economic growth, we believe that personal success and knowledge about mental and emotional stability is imperative in preparing students for their future. We believe in a higher education curriculum that invests in student's personal development as much as it invests in their academic development.

 Struggling  To Cope

Adjusting to university life and meeting high academic demands, can be stressful for students, international students and those balancing work and their studies at the same time. Unfortunately, not all students have the background knowledge to cope with university life or knowledge about organisational,  time management, resilience and self regulation skills which are of utmost importance in their university journey. We are dedicated to improving the way mental wellbeing programmes are run in higher education, by introducing student resilience and personal development programmes and embedding these programmes within the curriculum which will enhance student wellbeing and decrease mental issues in higher education.

 About The Mental Health Crisis  

 

 

Our Approach:

  • Provide information about the importance of self-care, self-development and resilience in university.
  • Introduce the concept on individual sustainability and student resilience.
  • Promote holistic thinking and emotional intelligence.
  • Help students better manage their organisation, time management and assignment planning skills.
  • Encouraging students to balance their personal and academic success.

 Why  We Are Taking Action

Putting University Students’ Mental Wellbeing First

  • Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death in ages 10-24 and mental health issues are prevalent amongst university students, with more first year students than ever before reporting mental health issues at university.
  • One in four students suffer from mental health problems.
  • One in four people in the world will be affected by mental disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide.

We believe that mental health issues are a symptom of a greater cause which is the lack of resilience and self regulation skills within students. The best way to tackle and prevent these statistics in the future, is by embedding self-development and student resilience in the form of an elective module, orientation week program, interactive workshop and information sessions in the higher education curriculum that will outline the skills students will need for university life. The core reason why Trinity Wellbeing exists, is to be that module and programme needed by students to be well equipped for their university journey.

 

 

 What  We Do and  How  We Do It?

Personal-Development

At Trinity Wellbeing, we want to help students become the best versions of themselves whilst in university. Developing your cognitive processes, habits and techniques for emotional regulation can enable you to be individually sustainable, and ultimately to achieve better mental health and wellbeing.

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence helps you build stronger relationships, succeed at school and achieve your career and personal goals. So, not only can it improve your mental and emotional wellbeing, but it is also fundamental to being successful and sustainable in your professional life.

 

Resilience

Coping skills are a powerful way for all students to build resilience, self-awareness and self-regulatory skills as they face the stressors of university life.

 

Resilience

Coping skills are a powerful way for all students to build resilience, self-awareness and self-regulatory skills as they face the stressors of university life.

We collaborate and work with U.K. universities, their student unions and student support departments, to deliver youth-lead, engaging and impactful information sessions for university students. We do this by running:

  • student resilience and personal development workshops
  • programmes and information sessions during induction for first years
  • university student wellbeing events

We are a “module in motion”, when universities need self-care and self-development information to prepare their students for their university journey, we are a contact away.

Our information sessions and workshops are facilitated by our founder Nomhle Shantel, these outline the importance of self-awareness, self-care, self-development and resilience as a mechanism to sustain student wellbeing and prevent mental health issues in university. Through story and experience sharing, creating a safe space for vulnerability, connection, youth-led sessions and student engagement, we empower students to create a compelling self-regulated vision. By focusing on essential university skills such as time management, organisational and social emotional skills, students develop the skills they need to become their best selves. In turn, they graduate with more than just a degree, but with practical knowledge about resilience and self regulation skills too, which will enable them to sustain their personal self in their careers.

The reason why we have included organisation and time management skills is because these skills are not taught in university, yet we believe these are crucial skills to helping students effectively cope with the demands of university. It is especially important for international students and students who balance work life and academics.
