Newsletter Issue 16 (Summer 2009)

September 2009

Welcome to Issue 16 of the OSMHN Newsletter. This issue is packed with interesting articles, training opportunities and useful resources. The next OSMHN workshop on ‘Mental Health Problems in Male Students' on Friday 20th November is flagged up so, although it is too early to book, please make a note of the date in your diary. We also have a summary of the last OSMHN workshop on ‘Eating Disorders' and news of the updated version of the OSMHN website at the new address: http://www.osmhn.org.uk

Thanks to those of you who have contributed short articles to the newsletter. If you have something that you would like to share with the network for example, a group, workshop or training course that you have either attended or run please let us know about it. Or you may have come across a mental health issue which you think needs addressing in Higher Education or Further Education - some practice or policy - that you think may have a positive or negative impact on the mental health of students. If there are issues you would like to know more about and would like to see articles on please also let us know.
