Challenges and Dilemmas in Mental Health Support at University: What is the Way Forward?

Challenges and Dilemmas in Mental Health Support at University: What is the Way Forward?

Thu 14 November 2019 10:00-11:00

G.02, 50 George Square

 

We invite students and staff from across the university to come along to join a conversation aimed at understanding potential implications of mental health support for students in relation to their university work and potential recovery. 

 

These implications concern academic staff, disability staff and the students themselves and so we are interested to hear from all those concerned. 

 

This is an interactive talk which aims to explore different methods of supporting students who have mental health conditions. The talk will discuss some 'ethical hot potatoes' that mental health staff experience which may impact longer term outcomes.

 

Audience participation is encouraged to discuss creative ideas for possible ways forward for the University as a whole to support students who have diagnosed mental health conditions and also to promote activities which encourage positive mental health for all. 

 

This event is hosted jointly by Julie Smith, Teaching Fellow in Developmental Psychology at Moray House and Carole Haxton, Mental Health Mentor, Student Disability Service.
