Student mental health support over Christmas
Whether you are going home for Christmas or staying in Portsmouth, Student Space is available 24/7 over the Christmas break for students. You can contact them about anything no matter how big or small your worry may be.
Maybe you just want to chat with someone:
Text support (24/7)
Phone support (3 pm to 12 am everyday - new extended availability)
Webchat support (4 pm to 11 pm every day)
Email support (24/7 - response within 24 hours)
If you want to stay active during the Christmas break follow our Facebook page: UOP Sport and Recreation. Although we may not be delivering classes live, we will be sharing our favourite fitness classes daily from the last 9 months. Staying active is a great way to make you feel good, reset your mindset and burn off those mince pies.
Wherever you are spending Christmas this year, we hope that you have a joyous time. Always remember you have the support and someone to turn to at all times.
