It is increasingly recognised how important mental health and wellbeing is for staff and student success. Universities and colleges are fast-developing ‘whole institution approaches’ to mental health and wellbeing, not only to improve academic outcomes and retention, but to provide a holistic and positive experience, even in the most challenging times. This one-day conference, organised by the Mental Wellbeing in Higher Education Expert Group in collaboration with Advance HE, via keynotes, panel sessions and case studies from the sector, will provide a constructive space for colleagues to come together to share real-world examples of how they are putting into practice the strategic goal of a whole university approach to student and staff wellbeing.
Who should attend?
This conference is organised by frontline professionals for frontline professionals, and will be of interest to Heads of Counselling, Student Welfare Officers, Student Support Officers, Lecturers, and anyone wishing to learn more about identifying and addressing poor mental wellbeing within their students.
