Nido introduces wellbeing partnership with Psychologist Dr Tara Quinn-Cirillo

Posted in Blog by romylevin on October 7, 2021


This year, to mark World Mental Health Day on October 10th, Nido is proud to announce a new wellbeing partnership with Psychologist Dr Tara Quinn-Cirillo. Working predominantly online, the programme has been designed to provide residents with support, advice, resources and tools to maximise their wellbeing.


With a career spanning over two decades, including 15 years of service with the NHS, and experience working with numerous age groups and demographics, Tara is extremely well placed to empower Nido residents and equip them with tools to build resilience and enhance their mental health.


The programme will include live streams, pre-recorded content, infographics, toolkits; plus a wellbeing hub. Residents will be able to join all live events anonymously, but Nido aims to create spaces where students can access the content together, to normalise conversations around mental health and wellbeing. Events will also be recorded so the materials can be accessed throughout the year.


Nido will gather regular feedback to gauge sentiment, review the programme and tailor focus throughout the academic year.


Darren Gardner, COO of Nido, says: “Nido is committed to positively enhancing the lives of the residents who choose to live in our buildings. By empowering students and young professionals with these emotional healthkits, it will allow them to apply these skills to any aspect of their adult lives; whether it be studying, professional or personal needs”.


Dr Tara Quinn-Cirillo comments: “Emotional wellbeing can present in different ways. It is important to provide a selection of methods to help people understand their personal formulation including triggers. Psychoeducation is the an important first step in helping individuals to understand and then evaluate how they’re feeling.”
