One in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem at some point in a year. Financial, work or relationship issues can make it harder for people to cope.
To raise awareness of issues affecting staff and students in relation to mental health issues in line with the University’s Equality and Diversity agenda, the University will be holding a mental health awareness training day. We are aware that there is a stigma associated with mental health which may deter people seeking help. This course will look to equip you with how to recognise the early signs and symptoms of some common mental health problems – in ourselves, our colleagues and our students – and how to give initial assistance, care and where to signpost people.
If you would like to enrol on this course it will be held and run by our Employee Assistance provided Amian here at the University on Thursday 28 July 2016 at 9.30am till 4pm. Refreshments will be provided.
In the first instance, places will be limited to 20 delegates. To book a place on this course, please email Kerry Prescott in HR on ku.ca1585845504.notl1585845504ob@9w1585845504k1585845504, by no later than 30 June 2016.
