Challenging the Higher Education Curriculum
Improving Student Mental Health and Wellbeing Through Embedding Resilience and Personal Development into Curricula
Trinity Wellbeing is a U.K. registered community interest company, founded with the vision of providing a solution and a different approach to improving university students’ mental health and emotional wellbeing across the globe, by challenging and transforming the traditional higher education system to prepare students for both professional and personal success. A Harvard study estimates that, the biggest predictor for success is self-control and emotional health. We want to give students the knowledge, support and tools they need to be individually sustainable and resilient, by looking after their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
By integrating student resilience and personal development skills to mental and emotional wellbeing measures within the curriculum, we aim to provide an effective, impactful and top-down solution to improving students’ quality of life. Learning how to positively cope empowers students to be self-reflective and take responsibility for their actions.
Trinity Wellbeing supports the SDGs through incorporating student resilience and personal development programmes in the higher education curriculum to promote sustainable student mental wellbeing and quality education.
Understanding what you are feeling, what you are thinking and what motivations lay behind your actions, you can begin to feel less overwhelmed and start to take back control.
Recognise how to invest in yourself to transform your quality of life. Making time for activities that enable you to relax and pursuing healthy lifestyle choices can dramatically affect your mental and emotional wellbeing.
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 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.
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 believe the solution to creating a sustainable, mentally healthy and happy university environment, lies in embedding resilience, self-care, self-development skills into the higher education curriculum. We work alongside university welfare departments and student unions to pinpoint how best we can integrate our solutions with existing mental health support systems to improve student experience, wellbeing and support.
We are a youth-led “module in motion”, A module students need to develop their personal self in university, alongside developing their intellectual and academic ambitions. Students are pressured to perform with excellent grades but are not being taught the personal development skills that they need to acquire in order to be resilient in their journey leading to graduation, especially with the external pressures that may be affecting their mental and emotional wellbeing.
There are many academic modules, why not have a resilience and personal development module? That's why we exist! Trinity Wellbeing plays an essential role in providing this much-needed module for students.
University students’ mental and emotional wellbeing is the primary concern of our mission. We also rely on students and the youth to join and support our mission going forward. Let’s stand together in using our voice and unique skills in helping students, to tackle the mental health crisis in universities globally.

Nomhle, who grew up in South Africa and moved to London, United Kingdom to further her studies, is a social entrepreneur, Founder and Executive Director of Trinity Wellbeing, a U.K. registered community interest organisation creating social impact in higher education. Nomhle is a 23 year old, passionate about education, resilience, self-regulation, personal development, wellbeing and emotional intelligence. She has received professional training for her socially impactful roles as course representative, school representative, eMentor and student ambassador at the University of Westminster during her studies in BA(Hons) Business Management (Entrepreneurship) in London. She has also delivered talks to prospective students about her university experience, sharing tips about resilience as an international student. These roles have inspired Nomhle to venture into becoming a social entrepreneur and create social impact within the higher education system globally.
Being a voice for students and assessing some of the challenges her fellow peers faced during their studies, has enabled her to turn these experiences into a platform for advocacy for social change in the higher education system. After observing the increasing student mental health crisis in universities, both in London and the rest of the world, she identified a gap in the way mental and emotional wellbeing measures were implemented in higher education. Seeing fellow peers drop out, after experiencing academic pressure and depression during their studies, propelled Nomhle to create change in the way universities deal with mental wellbeing. She envisions to change the narrative of how mental wellbeing is dealt with in universities and proposes that the best way to deal with it, is to have universities invest in students’ self regulation, personal development, resilience and social emotional skills, as much as it invests in their academic interests and careers.
Looking forward to working with you in transforming higher education and addressing student mental wellbeing sustainably!
