A selection of group and individual activities for students,
aimed at raising their Emotional Health & Wellbeing.
2020 has seen challenges never faced before and as we look to the future,
the impact of these will continue to resonate.
XenZone, as leaders in digital Emotional Health Wellbeing recognise this, designing and developing resources to help both professionals and students work openly with issues that stem from or have been exasperated by the world crisis.
Quality endorsed by the Open College Network as part of XenZone’s Emotional Resilience programme and approved by our Clinical and Safeguarding departments, these resources are aimed at students to explore their own Emotional Health and Wellbeing and that of others.
These offer a range of activities, covering topics like good sleep hygiene, creative self expression, connecting with others and many more!
Activities can be accessed from the Kooth homepage and are great for young people looking for self help strategies for specific issues or simply choosing fun things to do to pass the time while they are at home. All activities have clear and achievable goals and there is no expectation to complete them, just encouragement to try out the ones that feel right for them.
All these activities and more are available 24 hours a day on our Emotional Health and Wellbeing online service www.kooth.com
