We know that university life can sometimes be challenging. That’s why TUS Library have put together a collection of reading materials on a wide range of topics around positive living, personal health and wellbeing.
Whether you’re interested in managing stress and learning some new relaxation techniques, or having more difficult mental heath issues,
there are books here that can help. There are also links to helpful videos and websites in the subject areas.
The collection consists on physical and e-books available to all TUS staff and students to engage with, browse and borrow for themselves.
