Our Healthy Body Healthy Mind Awards and Student Mental Health Agreement projects provide expert consultancy to help you to develop innovative programmes and projects to support student mental health on your campus. The Think Positive Launch Event will enable you to find out more about the projects, how you can get involved or how you can develop your existing work in this area.
Our workshops will give you the tools, knowledge and support to combat the stigma surrounding mental health, develop the links between mental health, smoking cessation, physical activity and sport and to make practical changes on campus. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear from people who have previously taken part in the event and the chance to sign up to one or more of the projects. Overall the Launch Event is a fantastic opportunity for you to meet other participating institutions, share ideas and make connections.
Recommendation of attendees: a sabbatical officer, member of staff and staff member whose remit contains sport. This event is open to students’ association officers and staff, and college and university staff in Scotland.
