SUPPORT FOR UNIVERSITIES
Around 75% of mental health conditions develop before the age of 25. Over the past 10 years, five times more students have disclosed a mental health condition to their institution. Students in higher education can experience poor mental health and wellbeing due to factors such as an increase in academic, financial and social pressures.
We provide early intervention workshops directly to young people in higher education to equip them with the skills to better manage their emotional health and wellbeing to better navigate this exciting yet challenging time in their lives.
Ongoing 1:1 support with a caseload of young people can be arranged to take place at your university.
We focus on managing emotional health and wellbeing by:
Creating personalised wellbeing plans
Confidence and resilience building
Goal setting and SMART targets
Positive coping strategies and habits
MIND OVER MATTER WORKSHOPS
We offer a selection of individually tailored, interactive group mental health awareness, resilience and confidence workshops. We facilitate and ignite relatable conversations and encourage debate between the young people on current issues from within their own communities.
The series can be tailored to cover issues relevant to different age groups and backgrounds, including topics such as:
Understanding mental health
Mental health conditions and recognising the signs and symptoms
Self-help tools and services for additional support
Developing resilience with a growth mindset
Managing stress and anxiety
Coping with change and building independence
Large presentations and taster sessions also available. Get in touch with us to discuss your tailored package
