Introducing Month of the Mind 2017

During May we will be running our second annual Month of the Mind events programme which focuses on mental health in a number of ways.

We are delighted to host Caroline Hounsell and Margaret Glenn to The University of Nottingham. Caroline is Director of Partnerships and Product Development at Mental Health First Aid England and will be speaking on Thursday 11th May about how Mental Health First Aid can be used in higher education institutions. You can book your place here.

On Friday 12th May, we host Dr Margaret Glenn, Associate Professor and Coordinator of Clinical Rehabilitation & Mental Health Counselling at West Virginia University. Margaret will be talking about bibliotherapy and her research into how using reading and literature can help to manage and live with long-term mental health conditions. You can book your place here.

We are excited to work with Rough Trade again this year to deliver a second In Your Head event after its success during our Disability December events programme last year. The event will focus on creative expression of lived experiences of mental health and will feature performers from across the East Midlands. This event is free to attend on Tuesday 9th May from 7pm.

University of Nottingham researcher Dr Nicole Porter will be contributing to the programme, focusing on her research around mindful spaces. Details of how to book on this event will be communicated shortly.

Make sure you keep checking back for more information and the most up-to-date event listings. You can also get updates from @UoNPandC on Twitter. All events are free and everyone is welcome.
