Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
In partnership with Institute for Mental Health's Peer Support Education Team, students and staff at the University of Nottingham’s School of Health Sciences are launching a new initiative to support people who are studying within the school.
In recognition of the specific challenges faced by people studying to be healthcare professionals, the ‘Bridge Network’ is being created.
The network aims to set up peer support groups led by student peer facilitators; meeting with each other and providing a safe space to gain support and talk about mental health.
Peer facilitators will receive accredited training and supervision for this role.
Students are at the heart of this project and the network will be developed and run by student peers from the School of Health Sciences who themselves have experienced mental health challenges.
