Mental Health Aware
Course Description:

To support our student- facing colleagues, we are offering an online course delivered by external organisation Mental Health First Aid England and endorsed by the Department of Health and Social Care and the Royal Society of Public Health.

Moving away from support networks for the first time, academic pressure, financial worries, rising debt and the uncertainty of the graduate job market can all trigger mental health or worsen existing mental health issues in students.

This course is designed to develop mental health awareness and improve knowledge of common mental health conditions so that we can provide the best support to our students during these challenging times.
