University Mental Health Day, an annual event to raise awareness of mental health in higher education, takes place this week on Thursday 4 March and we are hosting events across the University for both staff and students.
This year our range of events for University Mental Health Day include talks on mental health, motivation and mental well-being from experts both within and outside of the University including Rosie Tressler OBE, CEO of Student Minds and British Touring Car driver Nicolas Hamilton.
There will also be guided, specialist sessions such as a workshop on Supporting Students of Colour from the co-founder of Minds of People of Colour or An interfaith conversation lead by the chaplaincy service. There is loads of information and support on offer for all members of our University community.
Throughout the week there will also be competitions, challenges and a world record attempt to get involved with, plus make sure to follow us on our @UoNStudentLife twitter where we’ll be sharing past blogs from our student bloggers about their experiences of mental health struggles at university.
For a full list of events and sessions to get involved with please visit the Healthy-U University Mental Health Day page.
