New mental health awareness training made available.

March 19th, 2021

Following on from our attempt at a Guinness World Record for the most people to take an online mental health lesson in 24 hours we have made the mental health awareness course available to our entire university community.

Whilst we were unable to achieve the world record we saw a large number of students and staff complete the training in the 24 hour period on University Mental Health Day 2021. We also saw positive responses from those who completed the course about their reflections on their own experiences and awareness of mental health. 

This training, which is available here, is non clinical in nature and draws on information from a number of resources  (i.e. Togetherall, NHS, Mind UK, UoN HealthyU, and the New Economic Foundation website) and includes staff and students sharing their thoughts and experiences about mental health and wellbeing.

If you or someone you know is struggling with their mental health, please talk to someone. The university offers mental health support for both staff and students and recently commissioned Togetherall, a digital mental health service for staff and students.
