  • To consider the nature and role of stress and anxiety in the context of academia, recognise when these are proving problematic and discover ways to better manage the problems effects.

Objectives

  • For students to develop an appreciation of mental health and wellbeing as an integral and essential component of health overall.
  • For students to recognise their self-knowledge and abilities to cope with the normal stressors of life.
  • For students to gain an enhanced understanding of mental health and wellbeing in relation to themselves and their wider communities.
