Programme: Mind Mentally Healthy Universities: Undergraduate Training
Course: Mentally Healthy Students: tools and techniques to manage your mental health and wellbeing
Description:

This is a more in-depth course which runs over four weeks, with one online module and one face-to-face group session each week. It will equip you with specific tools and techniques to improve your mental resilience and to help you look after your mental health.

 

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

Duration: Online module (approx. 30 mins) and 2 hour session each week for 4 weeks

 

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 counselling and peer support services. It’s also important that all students know how they can build their mental resilience and manage the pressures of university life, to potentially prevent problems before they begin.

 

Mind’s new course has been adapted for students by our partners at the University of Leeds, and is based on a hugely successful resilience course run with the emergency services, originally developed and evaluated by the University of Oxford.

 

What will I learn?

This course is designed to teach you about mental health, provide you with tools and techniques to increase your personal resilience and help you manage your mental health at university.

 

This course will give you skills in:

  • training your attention
  • managing stress and worry
  • dwelling and imagery
  • dealing with difficult emotions
  • improving performance
  • managing your own mental health

 

What will it be like?

The course is delivered over four weeks. Participants will complete an online module (approx. 20-30mins) and attend a 2 hour group session each week. There will be approx. 15 students in each session and the longer format of the course is designed to allow for peer support and increased connections between students.

 

It is important that you aim to attend all four of the face to face session as these provide invaluable time to reflect on learning from the online modules and create a more in-depth understanding of the techniques you will learn about.

 

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 course for you. Please get in touch to talk to us if you are unsure at r.skyer@lse.ac.uk.
