Students: responding to the current situation in Ukraine and Russia
Our community is deeply affected by the shocking situation in Ukraine. Many of us have close links to Ukraine and Russia, or have direct experiences of conflicts in other parts of the world. It is natural to feel fear, worry, distress and worry about what is happening. Everyone reacts differently, and it's also OK if you feel or think something different to your friends and other people around you.
The Student Wellbeing Department is available to support you, whether you need a space to take a break or want to talk to someone. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask a question or make an appointment. You can drop into B007 without an appointment to take a break or talk to someone.
We have put together some resources with some advice and information that you might helpful:
