From maintaining your mental health to coping with a physical illness or disability, being a student can be tough. It's important you have ways to cope and know where to find support.

BioSoc truly value your wellbeing which is why we want to provide you with enough information and support to overcome any challenges thrown your way!

We would also highly recommend educating yourself on wellbeing further through the IATL module: Understanding Wellbeing. This is a HEAR-accredited module offering a holistic understanding of wellbeing!

Warwick Enable 

Warwick Enable is the disability liberation and campaigning society on campus. They are for disabled students, friends, allies and carers or enablers, welcoming anyone who is passionate about disability and inclusivity. They run a buddy scheme for everybody, from freshers needing a partner to ease the process of settling in, or upper years feeling they might benefit from some peer support. The scheme is open to all members who define as disabled, chronically ill or as having a disability (and mental health is very much included in that). Its aim is to foster a sense of community and create supportive partnerships so that everyone has a fellow student to turn to for fun and friendship as much as advice. UGs and PGs welcome with membership free to all. For more see link in heading.
