During the past year, my focus has been around student mental health. It has been particularly gratifying to be involved in establishing the sector-leading Greater Manchester Student Mental Health Hub in collaboration with the NHS. I have also been involved in two OfS-funded studies to improve both undergraduate and postgraduate student mental health and wellbeing. I jointly developed the very popular and positively evaluated ‘Understanding Mental Health’ UCIL course unit and led a Social Justice Challenge on ‘Race’.
In the coming year, I shall be concentrating on a programme of activities to deliver the University’s Race Equality Chartermark action plan. My colleagues Prof Young, Dr Cowen and I shall continue to work closely to explore issues at the intersections between the various protected characteristics
