Minds Matter

Event providers: Salford City College

In a recent study by the University of Manchester it showed that the drive of Public Health England has, rightly, focused on the growing threat of the Covid-19 pandemic but has failed to respond to another less visible epidemic – Mental Health.

Minds Matter is a workshop that covers key points around uncovering the definition of mental health and how students can address their individual needs whilst maximizing productivity or learning during lockdown. We will also give students the tools they need to prepare their next steps and be confident so to alleviate pressures.

We cover the following themes:

  • Mending Mindsets
  • Accentuating the Positive
  • Social media sabbaticals
  • Working Productively, Coping Effectively
  • Unboxing Strategies for future success

The 1 hour fully interactive workshop takes notes from the NHS, Mind, The wellbeing thesis and Student Minds. Using a combination of breathing and meditative techniques as well as positive affirmation and working productively within a home environment.

GM Higher will need to record participation of learners in line with our funding requirements, so we will ask you to provide a register.
