Event description
Join the KQ for this Wellbeing Special Interest Group Meeting focussing specifically on Mental Wellbeing and Mental Health.

About this Event

Our first meeting for the Wellbeing SIG will be focussed on Mental Wellbeing. As COVID-19 restrictions begin to be reinforced, thinking about our mental health and wellbeing is becoming ever-more important. This event will include a talk from The Psychology Department at City, University of London and C&I NHS Trust's Recovery College. We'll discuss the trials and tribulations of mental health research, as well as practical tips to support mental wellbeing at work.

About the Wellbeing Special Interest Group:

The Knowledge Quarter Wellbeing Special Interest Group has been formed to share deeper learning and share knowledge related to physical and mental wellbeing. This group aims to:

  • bring together people who are interested in practises that can improve and support the wellbeing of staff in the KQ;
  • allow for sign posting local expertise on wellbeing within the KQ and beyond;
  • allow for the sharing of toolkits and best practises between KQ staff members;
  • provide an opportunity to share the latest research about Wellbeing;
  • explore the diverse approaches to wellbeing across the sectors (e.g. Arts organisations, data scientists, tech companies, universities etc).

About The Psychology Department, City, University of London

The Psychology Department at City are currently examining the psychological risk factors that underpin high levels of anxiety, depression and stress in undergraduate students. When the pandemic unfolded earlier this year, they started to examine the impact this had on student wellbeing and are continuing to monitor this as the circumstances continue to unfold.

They are a thriving, research intensive department, conducting world class research across many areas of psychology including autism, memory, decision making and cognitive neuroscience.

The Department of Psychology was one of only 13 UK universities to make it in to the top 100 of the 2018 Times Higher Education World Rankings (Psychology subject rankings) and ranked top 200 in the world and top 30 in the UK by the QS World University Rankings.

About The Recovery College
