LSE is taking part in Mind’s exciting new Mentally Healthy Universities pilot. Through this, Mind is offering a series of mental health and wellbeing sessions specifically for university students.

These sessions will give you tools and techniques to look after your mental health and wellbeing at university and eventually into the workplace. They will also empower you to seek the right support if you need it during your studies.

The sessions will be delivered at various locations on LSE campus by experienced mental health trainers. Sessions will provide a safe space to discuss mental health and learn from each other, and they are open to students with or without lived experience of mental health problems.

Following recent developments and contingency planning in response to COVID-19 (coronavirus), workshops have been postponed until the new academic year. However, you can access online sessions via Zoom on the following dates:
