Mind will soon be launching an exciting new pilot programme with 10 Universities across England and Wale. This programme will see local Minds deliver tried and tested models of building mental health literacy, peer support, and resilience, to prevent mental health problems before they arise.
In the next two years they will have a variety of opportunities (paid and voluntary) to get involved in designing, developing and reviewing our programme content and to share your experiences of mental health at university.
Mind are looking for a diverse range of current students who have had lived experience of a mental health problem and/or have experience of university life impacting on their mental wellbeing. If you’re unsure if this is you or have any questions about if these opportunities will be suitable then please get in touch with Gemma at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our current student opportunities
Over the next few months we’re developing a Mental Health Orientation course, which will be delivered to first years, and have three upcoming opportunities that you can apply for. If you can’t take part in any of these at the moment and would just like to register your interest for other opportunities in the future then please let us know.
Date: 28th August – 6th of September
Time: 3hrs anytime during the above dates
Application Deadline: 19th August
Application Deadline: Ongoing
We hope to engage as diverse a range of people as possible and particularly welcome people from LGBTQIA+ and BAME communities and those who identify with having a disability to tell their story. If this is you then we would really love to hear from you!
If you’re interested in getting involved with these opportunities, please do get in touch by emailing email@example.com.
