Mental health difficulties and psychological wellbeing: connecting minds

  • Wednesday 25 Sept
  • Room 206, Level 2, Messukeskus Expo and Convention Centre
  • Level: all
  • Related Expert Communities Access and Diversity

Based on experiences of students identifying as having mental health difficulties, this session will highlight how to create a welcoming environment for diverse students. Starting from exchanging their stories, students reveal what really matters. Listening to students, analysing the different layers in their requests, and co-producing new repositories of student support, tells us education is not merely transferring skills and knowledge but also human interaction and social processes.
