Work with us
We welcome any contributions you can make! Here are some instantaneous suggestions to help contribute to our aims:
- Stay in touch with us!
We would like to keep you updated and involved in our aims and objectives. You can find us on social network sites using the icons at the top of our webpages.
- If you're a Mental Health Adviser, you could join UMHAN:
To join our Network, have a look at our Membership pages. You will need to complete an application form but, if accepted, you will be able to contribute to UMHAN as much or as little as you want and will be able to stand for UMHAN Committee. Find out about some of the roles of the current UMHAN Committee through our webpages. Members of our Network find it helpful to share resources and training materials. Members may represent UMHAN and promote membership as part of their work.
- If you're a manager of a Mental Health in Higher Education service:
If you're managing a service which is fulfilling this role or managing someone with a Mental Health Adviser position, you can encourage your staff to become members and connect with us.
- Other organisations:
If you're a member of an organisation interested in our work, get in touch and let us know how we could mutually benefit each others' aims.
- Promote rights in mental health:
Make sure students know their rights in Higher Education, especially if you are a student yourself or know someone who is.
- Get involved in events:
Do something for University Mental Health & Wellbeing Day, share a constructive experience of disclosing mental health difficulties for our I Chose To Disclose campaign, write a blog for us about your experiences of mental health at university. You can find out some more information about our events and campaigns.
Make a pledge as to what you will do this year to assist with the citizenship of people with mental health difficulties.
If you want to volunteer and devote some time this year to work to your strengths with us - whether helping out at conferences, helping with publicity, writing articles - please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
