About the Event :

Managing mental health and wellbeing is a key part of thriving at university and we want students to have the knowledge and confidence to do this effectively. Mind has created this blended course of four weekly sessions and online learning to introduce students to tools and techniques that will help them manage their mental health during their studies and beyond.

The course has been adapted for students from Mind's robustly-evaluated resilience course developed with the University of Oxford. The course has been designed to target:

  • early warning signs for stress
  • vulnerability factors linked to longer term stress reactions
  • social capital and creates an opportunity to build a social network

The online learning is designed to be a foundation for each interactive group taught session. The taught sessions then allow students to practise what they have learnt with the support of a Mind trainer and build connections with their peers.

Week one (Tuesday 20th April) - It matters what you focus on: attention training

Week two (Tuesday 26th April) - Habits and dwelling: how to change them

Week three (Tuesday 4th May) - Dealing with difficult emotions: keeping your balance

Week four (Tuesday 11th May) - Transforming worries and improving performance

Who is the course for?

This course is for any student who would like to learn practical ways to help them manage their mental health and wellbeing.

It would be beneficial to students who have identified that they need (or have been identified as needing) resources and information to support themselves. It isn't suitable for people who might be experiencing high levels of distress or as a replacement for specific support for a mental health problem.

Delivery

Currently sessions are designed to be delivered online via a video conference platform. When the current COVID-19 situation allows we will be opening up options for delivery face to face as well.

All online sessions are to be delivered by an experienced mental health trainer and a co-host.

Online learning will be in the form of an approx. 20-30 min interactive session with videos and activities. This will be sent to the students before each taught session.
