Tea and Talk - A safe space. Mental health support in University. What do we need and how can we get it?

Thu 14 November 2019 11:30-13:30

Room G21, Paterson’s Land Moray House School of Education and Sport

 

 

This event is organised by the University of Edinburgh Moray House School of Education and Sport.

 

Drop in at any point between 11:30 and 13:00 to chat about mental health and wellbeing - stay for 5 minutes or 55 minutes!

 

The aim of this event is to provide a safe space in which to share struggles, challenges and coping strategies; a place to have a moan and discuss setting up support networks.

 

Over tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits we will be encouraging discussion of the following questions:

 

  • What would help make learning in The University of Edinburgh a more mentally healthy experience?
  •  
  • What would help make teaching here a more mentally healthy experience?
  •  
  • What makes studying or teaching here feel good for your mental wellbeing?
  •  
  • What are the aspects of studying or teaching that are detrimental to your emotional and mental health?
  •  
  • What are the ways in which you actively promote positive mental health in yourself and others?

 

FREE EVENT, just drop in!
