WHAM - Wellbeing Health Activity and Motivation

We surveyed 500 of our students and asked them exactly what they wanted. They asked for WHAM – an online and offline service that offers all things health and wellbeing.


Short, punchy blog posts that consists of a short video, text, trendy graphic design and signposting links to the best services in mental and physical health.

WHAM Podcast

Student, staff and expert interviews covering real stories around mental and physical health. These are long-form conversations where we ask burning questions like…

“How do you actually improve your mental health?”

WHAM drop in service

We offer friendly advice, support and referrals to the best external services. Students can access the wellbeing drop in service any time in college hours.


All about promoting WHAM so that more young people can access our services. Breaking down stigma and encouraging each other to talk – we all have a mind, we all have mental health.
