About the event
What is London Wellbeing Week?
London Wellbeing Week will give HEIs in London the opportunity to showcase and celebrate the work that they are doing to support students and staff in the area of mental health and wellbeing. Throughout the week individual institutions are invited to hold events, these can range from meetings, talks, coffee mornings, performances, showcases amongst others, all with the aim of highlighting their commitment to wellbeing. London Higher will support each HEI by sharing, promoting and communicating the events and the work that is being achieved across London with our members, stakeholders and the media. The theme of our inaugural London Wellbeing Week is ‘Promoting Good Mental Health and Wellbeing in London’s Universities’.
When is London Wellbeing Week?
London Wellbeing Week is taking place from Monday 02 to Friday 06 March 2020. This is to coincide with University Mental Health Day which is Thursday 05 March 2020.
Why should I get involved?
Mental health and wellbeing continues to be a priority issue, for the Universities Minister and OfS, for the media, for staff, and of course, for students themselves. London’s HEIs are working hard to achieve a step-change in this area. London Higher wants to create the opportunity to raise awareness not only of what is already being done, but also to enable London’s HEIs to create new conversations whilst sharing their innovations and effective ways of working. As we collaborate to celebrate excellence in London’s HEIs, we have an opportunity to communicate the bigger picture. This week will showcase what we are doing in London and how we can convey good practice amongst the wider HE community.
