We all have mental health. We are all likely to be affected, directly or indirectly, by mental health problems at some point in our lives. Research informs us that mental health problems are a global issue affecting 676 million people worldwide (WHO, 2015). Recent research (Hughes et al., 2018) identifies HE staff and students as a particularly vulnerable group.
The University is committed to tackling this important issue by raising awareness of mental health, supporting those who are experiencing mental health problems and training some of our staff as Mental Health First Aiders, to support both peers and students.
This panel discussion and Q&A chaired by Professor Sarah Sharples, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Equality Diversity and Inclusion, will explore what the University can do to better support staff mental health.
This event takes place 12-2pm, Monday 20 May 2019 at A08, Institute of Mental Health, Jubilee Campus.
Free. All welcome – booking required.
