If you’re interested in health and wellbeing and would like to learn more about key challenges in these areas, why not join us for our ‘winter warmer’ learning series? The series will be delivered by teaching staff in public health, mental health and wellbeing, and sessions are a relaxed way to learn about something new.

17 Dec
Mental Health Masterclass
Tuesday, December 17, 2019, 10am-3pm

If you’re interested in mental health and want to know more about the topic or would like to find out about our mental health courses, come along to our Mental Health Masterclass.
In the morning, interactive discussions will take you from Hippocratic times right through to the current era to see how our ideas around mental health and illness have developed. You’ll also be thinking about how these ideas influence our views today and asking the question – what is a mental illness? The afternoon will be dedicated to wellbeing. We will look at what mental wellbeing actually means, exploring the Five Ways to Wellbeing, and think creatively about how we can help individuals and communities to boost their resilience and feel good.

In the morning you will be introduced to some of the key public health challenges in today’s society, ranging from health inequalities to obesity, and how they play out in a community setting. The afternoon will then build upon the morning session by exploring how health and wellbeing can be promoted in a community setting, discussing innovations such as ‘social prescribing’ and community care hubs.
