The Healthy Body Healthy Mind (HBHM) Awards are about to enter a new chapter as Scottish Student Sport (SSS) step up to lead the project supported by NUS Scotland and ASH Scotland.
Following on from a record year of growth, with more institutions than ever participating in the project, we conducted an extensive evaluation and are delighted to announce that SSS will become the main strategic hosts, listening to their membership and acting upon report recommendations.
What does this mean and what will change?
There will be some exciting developments including a more expansive remit on mental health support and other related areas. SSS will present at the Think Positive event on 22 July to provide further details and take any questions. The criteria for 2019/20 is currently being revamped in response to member feedback and comments. SSS will assume strategic lead of the project with partners NUS Scotland and ASH Scotland contributing throughout the year.
The development of the HBHM Awards comes after extensive consultation and feedback from both members and external organisations. The project has enjoyed great success, with a record number of institutions signing up in 2018/19. To build on that success we agreed a more focused, strategic model was needed to help the project reach even greater heights.
The transition and handover of work is currently ongoing, with SSS expected to take full control and implementation of the project for academic year 2019/2020. SSS are set to give a keynote presentation on the development of the project at the Think Positive launch event on 22nd July.
We want to thank all the officers, staff and students who have worked so hard to achieve their HBHM Awards and look forward to supporting you to success in the future.
