How often do you write a letter - one to be placed in an envelope and sent in the post? You might not be surprised to hear that 64% of people who replied to a survey would not sit and hand write even one letter over the course of a year. Yet 69% said that receiving something handwritten through the post would mean more to them than a text, tweet or Facebook message. This session gives you the chance to make someone’s day, spend an enjoyable hour of writing, crafting a letter to send. We will gather in a small group, with writing prompts to help you shape snippets of life into a letter that only you could write.

They are filled with fun and quirky facts, and are seasonally relevant in order to help you remain connected to the world outside your door. King’s Garden is a social enterprise that supports those who need help to access the natural world for themselves; those in care homes, hospitals, living with dementia and/other life-impacting conditions. June – Mystery Guest – have you ever seen Britain’s’ rarest mammal? He’s only been seen in the UK six times and was last spotted sunbathing in Halifax in 2017. He has 23 cousins across the world; not all are red. He’s a member of the dog family but behaves more like a cat. Come and join Isa from King’s Garden as we take a close look at the UK’s most favourite mammal. Something completely different for grown-up children. No prior ‘googling’ allowed! This session is for 1 Hour

CHERISH: Caring for University Students’ Mental Health and Wellbeing

Organised by

The University of Westminster

Location

London - London - Westminster

Dates

June Thursday 10th

University of Westminster CHERISH: Caring for University Students’ Mental Health and Wellbeing To mark the Carers Week 2021, the University of Westminster would like to invite you to our CHERISH carers event on Thursday 10th June 2021, which aims to raise awareness of people caring/supporting individuals who may be experiencing difficulties with their mental health and/or wellbeing. Whilst poor mental health has been on the rise for several years amongst this group, it has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, placing greater demand on supportive provisions from professionals, charities, and organisations. In addition, friends, family members, colleagues, and many others are finding themselves in a supporter/carer role. Whilst this can be a rewarding experience, it can also be overwhelming. It is important that supporters/carers look after their mental health and wellbeing and feel supported in their role. The CHERISH Carers Workshop, organised with the support of the Health Innovation and Wellbeing Research Community, will offer a variety of talks and panel discussions from academics, persons with lived experience, and professionals working in different sectors to support mental health. We will cover topics focused on the diversity of what a supportive role may look like, ranging from informal to professional experiences, ways to look after yourself as a supporter/carer, and discussions about the role organisations such as Universities, charities, health care services can play in supporting supporters/carers. Some of the speakers include: Dr. Dominique Thompson: an award-winning GP, young people’s mental health expert, TEDx speaker, author and educator, with over 20 years of clinical experience caring for students. Sally Olohan (MBE): Head of Student Support and Residential Life at University of Westminster. Expert in higher education student support and wellbeing issues, with experience in service design, policy and strategy development. Dr. Kathryn Waddington: Reader in Psychology. Author of the book 'Towards the compassionate university: From golden thread to global impact'; University of Westminster. Laura Culshaw: Doctoral student & assistant psychologist in the NHS research focuses understand self-harm amongst University students; University of Westminster. Tina Cartwright: Reader and Registered Health Psychologists, specialised in the role of yoga and meditation in facilitating health and wellbeing; University of Westminster.
