Wellbeing Support Questionnaire

Introduction

To direct you to the most appropriate help as quickly as possible, please read the information below then click ‘Next’ to answer up to three questions about your wellbeing. The questionnaire is completely anonymous and should take no more than two minutes to complete.

  1. We offer a wide range of support for student wellbeing including workshops, groups, and self-help materials, such as apps and suggested reading. Very often, it is most helpful to begin with these, and in many cases, this will be all the support you need. This questionnaire will help you to consider what may be most useful.
  2. If you have seen a Counsellor or Mental Health Adviser within the past two months, you should call 0161 247 3493 or email counselling@mmu.ac.uk and request a further appointment.
  3. If you are considering making a request for exceptional factors, please read this information before completing this questionnaire.
  4. If your symptoms are long term in nature, you may also wish to consider contacting the Disability Support team.  
  5. Please note – the information provided is tailored to your answers, but is not a definitive list of support and does not mean you should refrain from seeking support from other sources, including speaking to someone in person. If you have any concerns, please call 0161 247 3493 between 8:45am and 4:30pm Monday to Friday.

Relationship difficulties, conflict, feeling isolated e.g. on your course, with friends, family.

Things you can try

Relationships can be a great source of pleasure and support but they can also be a source of grief or anguish if they breakdown.

Having healthy relationships with fellow students and academic tutors is a vital part of university life, and being able to build relationships with new people in new environments can stop you feeling isolated. 

If you need help to manage relationships more effectively, please consider the following:

Feeling low

Things you can try

We all feel low from time to time - unhappiness of a kind which passes and does not interfere with everyday life too much. Sometimes low mood can become more profound and persistent.

If you would like to improve your mood, please consider the following:

Still need help? - Contact a Wellbeing Adviser

Anxious, worried, stressed or panicked

Things you can try

Anxiety is a feeling of unease, worry or fear. Everyone feels anxious at some point in their life and a little bit of anxiety can be helpful – for example, feeling anxious before an exam might make you more alert and improve your performance.  For some people, too much anxiety can be an ongoing problem and can have a negative effect on their mental wellbeing.
