The Staff Mental Health and Disability Network provides a welcoming space for all staff with a personal interest in experiences of distress and confusion, emotional wellbeing and a commitment to improving approaches to work and mental health.
We hope to generate an increased level of acceptance and understanding of experiences of distress and confusion (and creative ways to deal with this) across all areas of the University.
We are also interested in addressing social justice and human rights issues in relation to mental health problems and work.
And we hope to ensure that the views and concerns of staff who live with mental health challenges are represented and considered at organisational level, so that these will begin to form part of the University’s wider equality and diversity agenda.
The network will use the following principles of self-organisation:
The meetings are open to anyone and everyone and encourage debate and dialogue.

Please note that if you have disclosed a disability either during the recruitment process or via self service, this information will not be passed to your line manager. If you would like to share this information for any reason eg, to request a reasonable adjustment, please discuss with your line manager.
