About this Event

Hello!

Will you help us shape a really innovative and unique project?

Have you heard of Pause@UoB?

Pause is a low-level, mental health drop-in service for students up until their 25th birthday to access low level interventions in a no appointment, no stigma, open space with a hub of qualified therapists. The service has been based in the Library Lounge, in the Main Library Building on the Edgbaston campus since October 2019.

We are continuously looking to shape the service with users and are keen to work with students like you to co-develop the Pause@UoB service. We would like to work with a select group of students with an interest in mental health, to help shape this innovative wellbeing offering, ensuring we are offering the best possible service we can, and reflect the opinions of the diverse student communities indicative of our campus.

What are we looking for from you?

If you have an interest in mental health (either through your own experience, through someone you know, or a different reason) we would like to invite you to join a small focus group to co-develop the service with us.

How much commitment is it?

We want to keep it time limited, so we are looking for students who can commit to a 1 hour session during late February – March on a Wednesday.

What do you get out of it?

Pause is an innovative and unique service. We are the only University running this model across the country and you will have the opportunity to play a really important part in creating your Pause service, ensuring that the voice of students is both heard and responded to.

Where will it take place?

The focus groups will take place in the small house to the left of the iron gates at the top of the green heart.

Refreshments will be provided during the sessions.

In addition, we would like to offer participants free training in mental health awareness, anxiety management and mindfulness. These courses, delivered by our trained team members will be run outside of the three sessions and are completely voluntary.
