Student Mental Health During the Pandemic


WUN is hosting a series of webinars to help member universities benefit from each other’s experience in addressing some of the unprecedented pandemic-related challenges now facing them.  Each webinar will last an hour, and will be organised around the sharing of insights about a specific challenge, followed by a broad Q&A.

The focus of our first webinar, to be held on Tuesday 5 May (local times below) will be student mental health.  The webinar will begin with the sharing of both research and practice insights and experiences from members of the WUN Student Mental Health Working Group. This will be followed by a broader discussion with all attendees.

Registration is required to join the webinar.  Click here to register.
