How can we give HE students the skills they need to keep well in uncertain times?
Join us for a free webinar at Thursday 3 June at 2.30 PM
The pandemic has taken a toll on student mental health – and has also brought into focus the challenge of supporting student wellbeing.
An NUS survey showed that half of students say their mental health has deteriorated or been affected negatively by Covid-19; but that only 1 in 3 of these had sought support.
In this free webinar for Higher Education practitioners working in student services and student wellbeing, we are exploring how universities can support student mental health as they plan a return to campus.
What have universities learned from the pandemic? How can you prepare students for uncertain times? And what practical steps can you take to boost resilience and ensure students can seek support for themselves and their peers?
We are joined by an expert panel including:
- Erin McClintock MEd, Vice President of Community Engagement Impact and Education, EVERFI’s Mental Health lead with expertise in young people’s mental health. Erin has held a variety of roles in the mental health and well-being sector within higher education, schools, and community-based wellness programmes.
- Kelly Robson, student services practitioner at University of Hull. Kelly is a registered mental health nurse. For the past 4 years, she has worked as a practitioner in student services and is undertaking PhD research into factors impacting on student wellbeing.
- Joe Castledine, student and JCR president at St Mary’s College, Durham University. Joe supports the undergraduate student body at St Mary’s College, looking after student welfare and the wider student experience.
