Programme: Mind Mentally Healthy Universities: Undergraduate Training
Course: Mentally Healthy Students: an introduction to managing your mental health and wellbeing
Description:

A workshop designed to introduce you to mental health and wellbeing, help you recognise common mental health problems and manage stress, and teach you how and where to get help if you need it during your studies.

For: Any first year students. Open to students with or without lived experience of mental health problems.

Duration: 3 hours (with breaks)

 

Why should I attend?

Mental health is something that we all have and it’s being talked about more and more. University can be an amazing experience for many people but it can also have a big impact on your mental health and wellbeing.

Universities are increasingly putting in new measures to support students experiencing poor mental health, such as more counselling and peer support services. But it’s important that students know what support is out there and when to ask for help, as well as being able to manage their own wellbeing and talk about how university life might be affecting them.

Mind’s new session has been developed alongside students so that it is relevant to all first years, regardless of background or experiences, and will be delivered by expert mental health trainers.

 

What will I learn?

You will leave this session with:

  • Improved understanding of mental health, wellbeing and stress – and how university could impact these.
  • Increased confidence to manage your own mental health.
  • Improved awareness of sources of support, within and beyond your university, and when to ask for help.

 

What will it be like?

The session will be with up to 20 other students and will last for 3 hours with breaks and refreshments.

 

You will learn from an experienced Mind trainer and will have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences about mental health and wellbeing within a confidential setting. There will be no expectation to talk or present ideas in front of others if you don’t wish to.

 

If you are currently experiencing a mental health problem and are looking for more specific support this might not be the session for you. Please get in touch to talk to us if you are unsure at r.skyer@lse.ac.uk.
