From the SMaRteN Student Teams
How are you responding to the Covid-19 lockdown? While for some it is a much-appreciated break from the speed and noise of normal life, it brings uncertainty and anxiety to many others. At SMaRteN, the Student Mental Health Research Network, we’ve been thinking about what you can do to look after your mental health.

Over the coming weeks we will all experience changes to the way we are working and to the environments in which we are working. Many of us may now be facing the prospect of studying from home in preparation for online assessments. For some PGR students, data collection may be disrupted, conferences cancelled, supervision may change in format or frequency. We may not have face to face contact with our peers, or be present in our lecture theatres, labs, offices or schools, and so online networks can be helpful to share our worries, or our strategies for coping, or tips for using technology to stay connected.
We are using this blog to help connect stakeholders across Higher Education interested in student mental health. If you have a project you are working on or an idea you'd like to develop, why not write your own blog post for us?
