Percival’s Podcast

Percival’s Podcast is a new resource Student Wellbeing Services are excited to share with you. Percival’s Podcast will be an interesting and engaging podcast which covers topics that can impact your university experience. Topics will cover mental health, wellbeing, university advice and we will have collaborations with the Students Union, departments and other Student Services. As this is our first podcast, please be aware that it is a trial run and we know there are things we can improve for the next one (such as the sound quality!), but if you have any other feedback please let us know.

The first episodes in Percival’s Podcast is a 2 part series, launching on World Mental Health Day which has the theme of ‘talking about Suicide’. The Mental Health and Wellbeing service have a conversation about signs, symptoms and how to support yourself and others with suicidal thoughts. Lucy Jones, a Mental Health Advisor, and Ffion Jones, a Mental Health and Wellbeing Coordinator have a conversation about suicide with Julia Hunt and Elisa Hari who are also Mental Health Advisors. We give advice about how and where to get support as well, which you can find below.
