Student mental wellbeing: current priorities and future challenges

6 Mar 2018, 09:30 - 16:30
20 Tavistock Square 
United Kingdom 


Student mental wellbeing: current priorities and future challenges is a one-day conference offered jointly by UUK and the Mental Wellbeing in Higher Education Working Group (MWBHE). This event will enable you to review and refine current strategy or build new systems to support students within your institution to improve mental wellbeing.

Why you should attend:

• Find out about latest policy developments and best practice 

• Walk away with actionable strategies to implement within your institution 

• Network and exchange ideas with colleagues​

Why are we talking about student mental wellbeing now?

Mental wellbeing is crucial to every student’s academic outcome and experience of university life. Higher education students are increasingly being put under a huge amount of pressure from their growing financial commitments, academic outcome and therefore future career. This conference will discuss how universities can provide the support students need and deserve, and provide you with the most pertinent and up to date information you need to shape institution's strategy.

​We have a range of sponsorship opportunities​ available at this event. Please contact Rachael Firth, Head of Events and Conferences for information. tel: 020 7419 5402; email: rachael.firth@universitiesuk.ac.uk ​​​
