Mental Health 1 in 4


A reminder about the Mental Health Awareness First Aid Training which will take place on Thursday 28 July. There are five places remaining on the course and anyone interested must book on as soon as possible.

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 provider Amian here at the University on Thursday 28 July 2016 at 9.30am till 4pm. Refreshments will be provided.

To book a place on this course, please email Kerry Prescott in HR on .
