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.
WHO ARE THE SEMINARS FOR?
Whether you work in an academic, non-academic or residential role at Oxford University, Oxford Brookes University, Oxford and Cherwell Valley College or Ruskin College, the voluntary sector or are a health or social care professional... ALL STAFF ARE WELCOME
