Working in collaboration with Student Minds and BUCS, The Students' Union at UWE now has a number of staff trained to deliver Mental Health Awareness Training to our members.
The workshops are aimed at particularly at those involved within Sport, however we are able to tailor them to all students that wish to attend.
The workshops aim to:
- Increase knowledge and understanding of what mental health is, the difficulties faced and the support available.
- Increase the skills required to support a teammate who is experiencing difficulties.
- Increase confidence around establishing a culture that promotes positive mental health.
The workshops are interactive, and involve group discussion, as well as some theoretical content, and all attendees take away a workshop pack with them to provide additional resource to aid knowledge and learning of the topics covered in the workshop.
