Day Four | 28/08/20

Sessions will be prerecorded and published ahead of the U21 Meeting and the Panels and Q&As will be held live over Zoom. All times listed are in Irish Standard Time.

If you missed the live session, please see the recording.

The session will commence with the official launch of the U21 endorsed Declaration on University Mental Health and provide participants with an overview of the Declaration’s development and reflections from feedback we received through the consultation process. This will be followed by a series of short presentations of case studies across the U21 network which demonstrate the Declaration’s principles in practice. The session will finish with a facilitated panel discussion and Q&A with participants providing an opportunity to consider the current challenges in supporting good mental health and wellbeing in university settings and opportunities to continue to share research, resources, innovations and good practice across the network.
