MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit

 

The MBU subscribes to the University's wellbeing programmes. Details of wellbeing activities and events are circulated regularly within the Unit. Links to additional resources, both within and outside the Unit and the University, are listed below. 

Our Mental Health first aider is Jennifer Thompson

Our Wellbeing Advocate at the Unit is Hannah Bridges, who is our point of contact for wellbeing issues. She will be circulating details of Wellbeing events and resources and is also available if you would like to chat through any wellbeing issues confidentially, so that she can guide you towards information and resources that can help and support you. If you have any ideas of initiatives or events, however big or small, it would be great to hear from you as well. By talking to you, the University Wellbeing Advocate Network and management, the Wellbeing advocate will also play a role in understanding and communicating the general themes and areas which need more focus going forward.
