Supporting Mental Health For STEM Students & Staff

The mental health of staff and students is a challenging issue in universities. Drawing on accredited mental health content, our development programme adds additional insight based on our work on Masculinity in Engineering and student data. The two-part course that can rapidly equip staff to look after their own wellbeing while being confident to support students when they first present with mental health challenges. A workbook cements learning between the two parts. Further development can include staff completing accredited Mental Health First Aid training, which EqualEngineers can help source.
