Description

Staff and students are invited to attend a one day conference on 'Raising Awareness of Mental Health in Higher Education (RAMHHE)'.  

The objective of the conference is to promote an inclusive day, where people can express their views and perceptions of mental health through collective dialogue. 

We will engage in discussions on five key issues:

  • Why do higher education students experience mental health?
  • How can we create an awareness of mental health among higher education students?
  • What strategies can we put in place to better support mental health among higher education students?
  • How can we promote peer to peer support for mental health among higher education students?
  • How can we provide a space for higher education students to express their views and perceptions of mental health?

Information from the conference will provide an interdisciplinary insight into how to raise awareness of mental health in higher education.
