Health & Wellness Talks: A steady (live)stream of support for the UM Community

As the UM Community gets used to an alternative mode of class delivery through the rest of the academic year in response to the continued threat of COVID-19, the UM’s Health and Wellness Centre has introduced a steady stream of support for all.
The Health & Wellness Talks, which come in the form of weekly Facebook sessions streamed live, consist of animated discussions with a number of experts on how to better deal with the fears and anxieties brought about by this new normal.
Presided over by UM Pro-Rector for Student & Staff Affairs and Outreach, Prof. Carmen Sammut, the sessions, held in Maltese, are also co-hosted by Dr Joan Camilleri, Head of Counselling Services at the University.

A person’s intellectual development and personal growth are complementary and are inextricably linked with each other in the development of the whole person. Our aim is to enhance and support the intellectual, spiritual, sexual and emotional growth of persons belonging to the University community. The University Counselling Unit is an integral part of the University of Malta and it offers counselling for its staff and students, and also participates in research, training and consultation.
