Workshops and Courses

OSMHN runs workshops for staff on issues relating to student mental health. The workshops provide attendees with an invaluable source of information and guidance on student mental health issues and additionally, provide a mechanism to enable staff members from local institutions and organisations to share experiences and knowledge.

These seminars are proving highly successful and well attended and are both helpful in increasing knowledge and understanding of a particular topic and practical and immediately applicable.

OSMHN is running a series of Lunch Time Seminars this academic year on mental health topics.

These seminars are proving highly successful and well attended and are both helpful in increasing knowledge and understanding of a particular topic and practical and applicable.
(Please note: the aim of the seminars is not to teach diagnostic or therapeutic skills.)

WHO ARE THE SEMINARS FOR?
