Health Promotion Service
As a Health Promoting College, the Health Promotion Service endeavours to promote the health and well-being of all members of the college community through policy development, the provision of programmes and activities and the implementation of specific health promotion strategies.
We provide many resources on health to both staff and students, and the office holds a wide selection of health promotion materials, which we make available as teaching practice aids and as general information sources.
We run different awareness days, programmes and workshops during the year. We provide confidential one-to-one support and advice on lifestyle change in the form of brief interventions. We can also refer you to relevant services in the community.
The Health Promotion Office is located in G06, situated on the ground floor of the Foundation Building, and its opening hours are 9.30am-4.30 pm, Monday to Friday. As well as the Health Promotion Coordinator, there is also a Student Health Promotion Officer based in this office.
The Health Promotion Office is located in the corridor between the Main Reception and the Restaurant.
We have an open door policy, so feel free to drop in at any time to sign up for events, to pick up a leaflet, or for a chat!
We advertise our events and programmes here:
E-PUB is an online anonymous alcohol intervention programme, which was developed to encourage third-level students to reflect on their drinking habits. It is a personalised brief self-assessment programme. The programme is self-guided and provides quick, confidential feedback. The programme is designed to give the user personalised feedback that is designed to support and motivate individuals to adapt and, if necessary, to reduce their consumption patterns. The link to the e-PUB programme can be found here.
MIC is a partner in the National Smarter Travel Campus initiative; find out more here.
