All courses and workshops
Our training courses are designed to equip students and staff with the skills and knowledge to provide support within the student community, as well as look after their own wellbeing.
Around one in four students report having a diagnosed mental health issue while at university. Academic performance is a leading cause of stress for students, along with managing money. We also know that one quarter of students don’t know where to get mental health support at university.
We believe in the power of peer support; students are often the first source of support for their peers and many students want to know how to provide appropriate support to others. Informal peer support can be a complementary part of a stepped care and early intervention approach to help students.
