University Mental Health Day

Thursday 9 March 2023

University Mental Health Day is an annual event where universities around the country make mental health a priority, raising awareness, getting staff and students talking about the subject, and looking at ways to improve wellbeing. As a national event, it is run jointly by Student Minds and the University Mental Health Advisors Network

Mental health is a major public health issue. According to the national charity, MIND, one in four people will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year in England; while one in six report experiencing a common mental health problem (like anxiety and depression) in any given week in England.
