The University of Nottingham will be hosting “Raise Awareness of Mental Health in Higher Education, an ESRC East Midlands student-led, interdisciplinary conference.

The aims of the RAMHHE conference are to provide a social learning space that will encourage collaborative discussions and to inform universities of the need to involve the student voice in the development of campaigns and awareness initiatives for mental health.

The group sessions will be on four key themes including: your understanding of mental health, who you would go to for your mental health, how mental health is viewed in your community and how we can better support and raise awareness of mental health in higher education.

There will be inspirational and motivational speakers with lived experiences of mental ill-health, mental ill-health service providers with information on mental health and well being and mental health practitioners on hand to answer any questions that you may have.

This event seeks to promote the student voice in raising awareness for mental health in higher education. Therefore, you are invited to submit a mental health campaign poster. The three winning posters will be used to support mental health promotion campaign on campus.

This is a free event for the first 100 undergraduate and postgraduate students (at the University of Nottingham, University of Birmingham and the University of Warwick) to book the event.

If you have any questions or queries please get in touch by contacting Josephine NwaAmaka Bardi or the RAMHHE organising committee.
