Gies a Break’ Wellbeing Café

West College Scotland’s ‘Gies a Break’ Wellbeing Café could provide the answers you are looking for to these, and many other, questions.

The café has been introduced to provide a space to meet other like-minded students and chat about life, your course, the challenges you face and, most importantly, the positive things that are happening in life too!

This is your café and your space to discuss topics which are important to you. Topics can include anything from how to deal with anxiety, to confidence building, to healthy eating, to tai chi. The café really is a blank canvas and we want to make it work for you.

So, don’t be shy and don’t suffer in silence. Come along, have a chat and ‘Gie yourself a break!
