Event description

Description

SMaRteN is a national research network funded by UK Research and Innovation, led by King's College London, focusing on Student Mental Health in Higher Education. Working with researchers with a range of expertise and key stakeholders across the Higher Education sector, our aim is to improve the understanding of student mental health.

As a member of the SMaRteN network, you are invited to submit an expression of interest to attend our first event, a “mini-sandpit” on the topic of measuring student mental health. The event will be held on King’s College London Waterloo Campus on Wednesday the 13th of March 2019 from 10-4.30pm.

The aim of this sandpit to support collaboration between research groups and universities interested in measuring and tracking student mental health and wellbeing. Since the network launched we have become aware of a number of exciting projects going on across the UK. From a network perspective, we are keen to help groups learn from each other and avoid duplication of effort. We are encouraging anyone interested in measuring student mental health at scale across their university to join this event.

This sandpit is linked to our first Plus-funding call. If assistance is necessary to get early stage projects established or to facilitate collaboration between existing projects, Plus-funding is available to pump prime research. To be eligible for the funding call we are running, projects need to be focused on understanding what is distinctive about student mental health. Please visit www.SMaRteN.org.uk, where further details are available.

Key topics for discussion on the day will be:

  • Preliminary feedback from the SMaRteN student-led research team project on measuring student mental health and wellbeing

  • Preliminary early feedback from SMarRteN work on student ethnographic case studies, reflecting on how students are thinking about mental health and wellbeing

  • The challenge of developing a set of core outcome measures for student mental health and well-being, and creating a common language

  • Consideration of how to measure the cost implications of poor student functioning and mental health

  • Networking opportunity

  • Development of potential research projects for the Plus-funding call.


Places are limited so please ensure to emphasize succinctly in the expression of interest section how the event is relevant to your work.

We have a small number of £50 travel bursaries for early career researchers. If you would like to be considered for one of these, please fill in the relevant section of the rsvp form that follows. Please register by Friday 15th February. You will be notified by 22nd February whether or not you have been allocated a space.
