Student mental wellbeing: policy into practice 2019

14 Mar 2019, 09:30 - 17:00
20 Tavistock Square 
United Kingdom

Join us for the 6th annual mental health and wellbeing conference in partnership with The Mental Wellbeing in Higher Education working group.

This year we will look at how policy effects practice and how you as practitioners go about implementing change within your organisation. The day will give you a chance to hear from sector leaders, get involved in breakout discussion and hear first-hand experiences and case studies.


Why should you attend?

From parents to perfectionism, the influences on current students' wellbeing are multiple and multiplying. It is paramount that universities continue to evolve our practices to ensure we stay ahead and keep this issue at the top of the agenda. This event will provide the opportunity to update your knowledge on the latest policy, take part in practical breakout sessions on current evidence-based practice and leave the day with a renewed drive to continue to develop your own mental wellbeing strategy.


Who should attend?

This conference will be useful for all university staff who have responsibility for or play a part in the management of student wellbeing.
