Newcastle University knows that time spent with animals can alleviate worry, provide comfort and mitigate against feelings of isolation and loneliness. Combining this with fresh air and physical exercise, can be a cocktail for positive physical and mental wellbeing. To support you in this, why not spend time with the Student Health and Wellbeing dog Bessie? Bessie is available for walks and company, most weekdays for up to an hour. To book your time with Bessie or find out more email shws.fiveways@ncl.ac.uk. Pick her up from Level 2 of King's Gate.
