University Mental Health Day is the national day for student mental health. Run jointly by Student Minds and UMHAN, Uni Mental Health Day encourages students and staff across the UK to run events and campaign to promote awareness and support for students at universities to manage their wellbeing.
UMHD 2020 will take place on the 5th of March.
The theme is community
Whether you’re a student, a member of support staff, an academic, or a senior university leader, we all have a part to play to cultivate a positive mental health community at university.
The campaign aims to empower all members of the university community to be active in supporting student mental health.Within this, we hope to:
Equip students and staff to run events in the university community to improve students‚awareness of support and ability to seek it, tackle loneliness, and promote a sense of belonging.
Encourage university students and staff to understand the role of the environment and community in protecting your mental health.
Reduce health inequality for students in the wider community.
