Queen's University Belfast will this year partner with Action Mental Health to host Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 (Monday 13 May – Friday 17 May 2019), holding a range of events and talks for staff and students.
Brian Parkes, People and Culture Director, said, "At Queen's, we are committed to creating a compassionate culture that supports and promotes the mental health and wellbeing of all our people and we are delighted to partner with Action Mental Health for Mental health Awareness Week 2019, with a range of events that will bring staff and students together to raise awareness, drive conversations and show their support for better mental health."
"The student engagement and activism driving the movement to enhance student mental health at Queen's through OMNI has been an inspiration to many of us as university staff and a reminder that we learn not just from experts but from our students.
"In adopting mental health as a strategic priority and implementing a whole-university approach that involves students and staff at all stages of the journey, we believe we can meaningfully address the issue."
