Mentally Healthy Students

Mind brings you three online courses designed with and for students as part of their new Mentally Healthy Universities programme.

Your time at university can be an amazing experience but it can also have a big impact on your wellbeing. Knowing how to look after your mental health is an important part of university life.

Mind is offering a series of mental health and wellbeing sessions specifically for university students. These sessions, which have been designed with students, will give you tools and techniques to look after your mental health and wellbeing at university and eventually into the workplace. They will also empower you to seek the right support if you need it during your studies. The sessions are delivered online due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The sessions will be delivered by experienced mental health trainers from Bath Mind and will provide a safe space to discuss mental health and learn from each other. They are open to students with or without lived experience of mental health problems.

Wellbeing Essentials for Students

A one-off two hour workshop designed to introduce you to mental health and wellbeing.

We all have mental health and managing mental health and wellbeing is a key part of thriving at university. This workshop is for all undergraduate students and explores what mental health is, how wellbeing can support mental health, where to find support and how to talk to others about mental health. After attending, students will be given access to a curated resource hub with additional tools and information.

Tools and Techniques for Student Mental Health

A more in-depth course which runs over a number of weeks.

A short course for any undergraduate student looking to learn more about managing mental health at university. The course will introduce students to different tools and techniques they and their friends can use to look after themselves. In the group sessions students will be able to practise these with the support of a Mind trainer and a small group of peers.

The course consists of two hours sessions for four weeks with 30 minutes independent online learning between sessions.

Looking After Your Mental Health at Work

A two hour interactive workshop where you will learn about how to look after your wellbeing and mental health at work, ways to manage your mental health as a new graduate, and your employers’ responsibilities.

University has a big role to play in preparing students to thrive in the future. This workshop aims to give students knowledge and confidence to help them manage their mental health and wellbeing when they move into work.

This course is for any undergraduate student who would like to learn more about the importance of workplace wellbeing and how to look after their mental health when they start work. It may be particularly useful for students who are thinking about their career choices, moving into a placement year, or who currently have a job. It is open to any student who would benefit but is particularly focussed on final year students.

The course isn’t suitable for people who might be experiencing high levels of distress and is not designed to give specific support to individuals.
