At the Learning and Teaching conference on Thursday 5th March 2020, Dr Anne Llewellyn will be presenting a session on Enhancing Student Health and Wellbeing in the curriculum.

This session will discuss the value of embedding resources in the curriculum to help to prevent some of the significant impact of social and academic transitions into higher education. Resources such as the AMOSSHE Resilience toolkit will be explored within a holistic model of student wellbeing which integrates personal identity into a constructivist paradigm of knowledge gain and skills development

Thursday 5th March is also University Mental Health Day and running alongside this year’s conference are two workshops.

9:00 – 12:00 T1.06 (The Curve)
14:00 – 17:00 H0.38 (The Curve)

  • What is mental health?
  • The mental health continuum
  • Stress and the stress curve
  • Signs and symptoms of depression and anxiety
  • Seeking support
  • How to talk to friends and family

Each session will be with up to 20 other students and will last for 3 hours with breaks.
