All welcome and please do feel free to bring along non-UCU staff members. As you will be aware, the number of university workers accessing counselling and occupational health services has shot up, according to research which describes “an epidemic” of poor mental health among higher education staff. Mental health problems within the student community are also on the rise, with student suicides reaching a record level in recent years. Please do pass on to colleagues/contacts who may be interested in attending this useful workshop.
