Wellbeing walls designed to promote student wellbeing and signpost ways for students to seek support for their mental health have been installed in the Sydney Jones and Harold Cohen libraries.
The Improving Mental Health through Partnerships Project and the team of student content creators have worked on designing a wall display to promote student wellbeing. The team worked to create digital content to support the project and to help to promote its message. They have been involved in the Wellbeing Wall Project, the Zero Suicide Alliance Student Module and other promotional activities.
The beautiful artwork on the walls was designed by local Liverpool artist, Sophie Green. The artwork also featured on a series of positive wellbeing postcards that were placed around the library buildings throughout Feel Good February.
To add an element of fun and in the spirit of ‘giving’ (which is one of the six ways to wellbeing), the library also provided the opportunity for students to win prizes by turning some of the postcards into ‘golden tickets’. Prizes included Amazon vouchers, travel coffee cups and library stationery.
The University of Liverpool is the leading partner for an Office for Students funded, Liverpool-based project working with regional partners to develop an integrated model of support for student mental health. Partners of the project include:
The project aims to develop a sustainable framework for an integrated approach between universities and the NHS, offering seamless referral pathways and shared protocols supported by a clear risk management strategy which clearly specifies the responsibilities of partner agencies.
