Mind will soon be launching an exciting pilot programme to support mental health at universities – working across the university student body, the higher education workforce, and with universities as employers.
In the next two years they will have a variety of opportunities (paid and voluntary) to get involved in designing, developing and reviewing their programme content and to share your experiences
One of the goals of the pilot will be to reduce stigma and improve peer support for university staff. Building on the success of Time to Change, Mind will be testing how to tailor support specifically for staff mental health champions in a university workplace -- equipping them to deliver anti-stigma activity and peer support in this setting.
Throughout July and August the team at Mind is keen to engage directly with a diverse range of university staff to develop this support. This is an opportunity to play a key role in shaping an exciting new programme for universities.
Mind is keen to hear from LGBTQIA+ and BAME communities so please get in touch with the team if you would like to be involved.
Mind would like to hear from a diverse range of staff so please be in touch if you would like to share your experiences through different means.
