Pressure Points provides flexible, online support for undergraduate and postgraduate students struggling with the pressures of university life. The 2023 study by TASO and The Policy Institute showed that 1 in 6 undergraduates are reportedly experiencing mental health issues. Pressure Points has been designed to provide foundational support on low level wellbeing issues to all students from pre-arrival through to transitioning out of university. The programme looks at key topics that matter to students when navigating life at university, especially in the context of a world which can feel challenging.
• Hear real student voices: Our ‘Students say’ pods, and poll activities reduce stigma and take a positive approach to help students understand that they are not alone in their experiences.
• Give students the flexibility to dip in and out of the resources as required with the concise and easy-to-navigate modules.
• Enable students to build self-awareness using a preventative, proactive approach.
• Utilising a variety of media, including animations, opinion activities and interactive practice scenarios, engage learners and promote self-efficacy.
