About this event

If you wish to know more about how everyday things and places affect our mental health and wellbeing and/or give us your own opinion, join our interactive PUBLIC webinar!

This webinar builds on a project by Lancaster University and Smarten*, the UK's biggest student mental health network.

We collected survey data and stories gracefully provided by a number of students nationally and internationally of diverse ages and characteristics.

We also turned reported experiences into a book of illustrated stories, or, in other words, an amazing graphic novel!

By participating and registering, you will gain:

  • free online access to the illustrated book/graphic novel about how everyday things and environments affect our mind and emotions - this mean we will send a link to your e-mail address by the end of the year
  • a preview of a number of pages from the graphic novel during the webinar
  • a greater appreciation and awareness of how everyday things and environments affect our wellbeing
  • a special opportunity to engage with and contribute to research and its evaluation, we value your opinion.
  • We gratefully acknowledge the support from the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences.
  • The project has been funded by the Student Mental Health Research network/SMaRteN, funded by UK Research and Innovation and their support is gratefully acknowledged (Grant reference: ES/S00324X/1). Any views expressed here are those of the project investigators and do not necessarily represent the views of the SMaRteN network or UKRI.
