The School of Clinical Medicine Mental Health Awareness Programme

The Clinical School has launched a new “Raising Mental Health Awareness Programme”.

The aim of the programme is to raise awareness of mental health and the implications of mental ill-health for Clinical School staff across the Biomedical Campus, as one in four of us will experience a mental health problem at some point during our lives.

Mental ill health ranges from feeling “stressed” or “a bit down” to more common disorders such as anxiety and depression and much more rarely, mental illnesses such as OCD, bipolar or schizophrenia.
