Guest EDI blog: Mental health awareness week 2022

May 9th, 2022

Monday 9 – Sunday 15 May is Mental Health Awareness Week 2022, with this year’s theme focussing on the impact of loneliness on our mental health and the practical steps we can take to address it.

To mark the week and help start a wider conversation about mental health, Professor of Stem Cell Biology and Director of the UoN Biodiscovery Institute, Chris Denning, has shared a personal blog about his mental health journey and highlights the support available.

The university is also holding an event as part of Disability Recognition Month which focuses on mental health and hidden disabilities.

A panel of our Disabled staff and students will join Katherine Linehan, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and People, in a conversation about their lived experience of invisible disabilities and mental health awareness in the university.

You can find out more about the event and book a place here.
