Student Wellbeing; what to do

46571In 2015-16, more than 15,000 UK-based first-year students disclosed mental health issues when applying to University. This number excludes those accessing counselling and wellbeing services after their first-year but during their time at University. The Institute for Public Policy and Research surveyed UK Higher Education providers and found that over 60% of services noted an increase in demand of services in excess of 25%.

You are invited to attend this seminar on 10 November to share your experiences of working with students, an awareness of University policy and support for students and the role of external healthcare agencies.

The draft seminar programme will begin with a presentation on Student Transitions by Dr Denise Meyer (Head of Student Wellbeing), followed by a relaunch of the ‘University Student Mental wellbeing guidelines for staff; students causing concern’.

There will an opportunity for discussion and networking during the course of the seminar.

Materials will be made available and there are guidelines for the Mental Wellbeing of Students in the Document Warehouse. If there is a lot of demand for attendance, there is the opportunity for the session to be run again.

  1. Will there be some materials/documents from this we can access online or something?

    Given the volume of teaching we have, many of us can never attend these things even though they would be very useful.

    • Hi Jonathan,

      Materials should be made available and there are also guidelines for student wellbeing available in the Document Warehouse on the website. There is also potential for another session to take place if demand is high enough.

      • I will look on the Document Warehouse.

        Thank you!
