Wellbeing and Your Mental Health

Welcome to MISU

 

Giving you a voice, helping you to use it, enriching your college experience

MISU is committed to helping students through all aspects of their college life - this includes highlighting the importance of student wellbeing and minding your mental health.

Positive mental health is of utmost importance and making sure you are feeling good is key to a great college experience.

Taking care of your mental health can be difficult and there is no quick fix when you don’t feel 100%. It is important to talk to someone if you feel troubled in anyway.
The college collaborates on mental health awareness weeks with MISU and there are established services to help you anyway they can.

Positive Mental Health support

There are many different resources online that provide help and information. In September 2020, the government and Psychological Counsellors in Higher Education Ireland (PCHEI) launched a 24/7 text service which provides mental health support for 3rd level students - text HELLO to 50808 if you need support. 

Others include Samaritans Ireland, with their 24 hour free phone service (call 116 123), Pieta House which also has a 24 hour phone support service (call 1800 247 247 or Text HELP to 51444), www.mentalhealthireland.ie , https://jigsaw.ie/ and on www.spunout.ie including the following Wellbeing article with advice on what you can do to improve your overall wellbeing.

 

Remember, you can always talk to someone if you are struggling.
