Higher Education Travel - Managing the risks

Securewest are proud to be supporting the Education Without Borders: Mental Health and Wellness in Study Abroad Conference on Thursday 17 October, 2019 9:00am to 5:00pm at Manchester, Marriott Hotel Victoria & Albert.

Mental health matters and no more so than in the higher education setting where mental health and wellness is a strategic priority. In a climate where young Millennials and Gen Z students are reporting higher rates of anxiety and depression than ever before, and with 700,000 UK students studying abroad and the UK hosting the second highest number of international students in the world, it is critical that UK Universities ensure duty of care in mental health and wellness is paramount.

Do your study abroad policies promote resilience, prevention and early intervention to avert mental health crises?

Could you respond appropriately and empathetically following exposure to a traumatic event overseas?

Do your programmes remove financial and cultural barriers to healthcare and support?

Join us for a day which places mental health and wellness in study abroad at the heart of the international education discussion. Visit the event website for more information on how to register: conference website
