Want to learn about Mental Health, lead workshops for younger students, build your public speaking skills? Then Open Minds is for you. 

Mental health is one of the greatest challenges facing young people today. Open Minds provides mental health education to school pupils by training university students to deliver workshops on mental health in local schools.

Throughout the year, we organise weekly workshops on Thursdays at 6pm, with leading expert psychiatrists, psychologists and teachers to give you the skills to deliver sessions in local schools. Our talks range from Self harm, Trauma, Neurodevelopmental disorders and Neurodivergence, Mood disorders, Subtance misuse, Eating Disorders, Anxiety Disorders and Maintaining mental wellbeing.

Once the training is complete, we organise school visits (online or face to face) where you have the opportunity to pass on your knowledge to school pupils. Our school visits aim to start the conversation on mental health, challenge the stigma associated with it, and tackle someone can help themselves and their friends if they feel they might be experiencing mental health issues.

All students get a certificate of achievement once they have volunteered in schools. 

If you have an interest in mental health, teaching or volunteering, or want to explore these things from scratch then join Open Minds!

Get in touch with any questions, we're a friendly committee :)
