Looking after Yourself

Despite the unprecedented circumstances, it is vital that we continue to look after our mental and physical health! The JCR team is doing all it can to provide the support and resources you need to ensure your well-being is prioritised over the coming weeks. We hope to add as many resources to this page as possible (so keep checking it regularly) and do get in touch if you have any other suggestions.

Secondly, we’re launching the ‘Queens’ Covid-19 Festival of Ideas’. Anyone at Queens’ can make suggestions here! We’re all going to need ways to pass the time, so why not steal book, film, podcast and recipe recommendations from others. Please make use of this page! You never know, you might discover your new favourite TV show…
