University Mental Health Day

University Mental Health Day 2018

University Mental Health Day is a national day for student mental health. The campaign is run jointly by Student Minds and UMHAN, and it focuses on promoting the mental health and wellbeing of all those in Higher Education – both staff and students. Therefore, all university students and staff are encouraged to get involved to help break the stigma of mental health whilst also supporting student mental health.

​University Mental Health Day 2018 takes place on Thursday 1st of March and this year’s campaign theme is ‘Community’.

  • Improve students’ and similarly staff’s awareness of support and promote a sense of belonging.
  • Improve understanding among students and staff of the role the environment and community can play in protecting student mental health.
  • ​Raise awareness of the specific challenges students face with regards to support for their mental health. Also influence education institutions and health providers to work collaboratively so all in higher education can thrive.

Universities across the UK will be getting involved and holding events to coincide with the University Mental Health Day campaign. To find out more about the campaign visit https://www.unimentalhealthday.co.uk/.​
