The University of Derby, Kings College London and Student Minds are working together, on a OfS funded collaborative project, to develop resources that can improve the mental health of Post-graduate research students. The new project will provide a national, open access web-resource, hosted by Student Minds charity. Taking a prevention and early intervention approach the project aims to support post graduate research student mental wellbeing. The project will fill a current gap in need by providing proactive resources to post graduate research students considering the whole post graduate research experience and supporting positive cultural change towards good mental health.
