The Mental Health and Wellbeing Event is aimed at all members of academia in Cambridge, regardless of whether you are just interested in the topic of mental health and wellbeing, struggling with the pressures that this lifestyle brings and trying to improve your coping skills, or have been diagnosed with a condition that impacts your mental health.

The event will include:

  • A panel discussion where panel members will discuss their personal experiences with/or professional expertise on the topic of mental health and wellbeing (including a Q&A with the audience)
  • Workshops to improve your coping skills in a stressful environment
  • The results of the GRASP Mental Wellbeing survey, which has been collecting data for the last two months
  • A personal video-message from Stephen Fry for our event on the topic of mental health, followed by his documentary ‘The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive’. 

The event is free of charge and will include a tea/coffee break as well as drinks and buffet food in the evening.
