Mental Health & Wellbeing Services

Notice of a meeting on 16 March, 12.30-13.30 UK time

We have been asked to publicise the following message from Anne Marie O’Mullane in Academic Services.

A Thematic Review of Mental Health Services at the University will take place on the 15 and 16 March 2016. The Review will also cover the provision of wellbeing services at the University. Thematic Reviews form part of the University’s Student Support Service Quality Assurance Framework.

The Review Team has asked for a meeting with two – three ODL students who would be interested in providing feedback on the delivery of student mental health services and well-being services across the student journey at University of Edinburgh.

The meeting will be conducted via skype and will take place on the 16 March at 12.30 – 13.30.

The meeting is intended to be a “safe space” to have a conversation with students on their experiences of mental health and well-being services at the University.  Conversations will be confidential and general themes/findings will be drawn from conversations for inclusion in the final report. Sheila Lodge, Head of Academic Administration in MVM will convene the meeting.

The Review Team is made up of internal staff, external members from other institutions with direct experience in delivering mental health services and students.  See below for information on the membership of the Review Team.
