#WolvesWellbeingandMe: new mental health and wellbeing survey launched
The University of Wolverhampton is working in partnership with the City of Wolverhampton Council to deliver the #WolvesWellbeingandMe programme, which will provide insight into the mental health and wellbeing of people and communities across the city.
To help understand local views, people across the city are asked to complete a mental health and wellbeing survey. The study is for people aged 16+ who live, work or study in Wolverhampton.
It takes around 15 minutes to complete, and all responses are anonymous and will be stored confidentially.
Anyone who completes the survey can also enter into a prize draw to be in with a chance of winning up to £150 of vouchers.
Clare Dickens MBE, Academic Lead for Mental Health and Wellbeing at the University of Wolverhampton, said: “This project is just one of the many shining examples of how the University works in partnership with the City of Wolverhampton Council to serve the community in which the University has a physical presence. It aligns perfectly to one of the pillars of our new student mental health and wellbeing strategy for the University, a development also supported by public health colleagues, which will yield many opportunities for students.”
Dr Jamie Annakin, Principal Public Health Specialist at the City of Wolverhampton Council, said: “This programme of work is vital in helping us understand the views of local people and communities, providing insight into how the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted on people’s lives, and the things people now feel are important in ensuring they can feel good and function well within our city.”

The #WolvesWellbeingandMe programme will look to explore the experiences of different population groups during the Covid-19 pandemic and consider the things that have challenged their wellbeing and the resources people have drawn upon to stay well.
