This event is free and you can register on the HEDG Eventbrite page.
The theme for this year’s HEDG Spring Event is around the University Mental Health Charter, which is part of the initiative to make our universities a safer place for those with, and who may develop, poor mental health. The Charter is not mandated but there is a government target for us all to sign up by September 2024.
The AGM will also be taking place within the March event and the draft programme can be found below and the link will be sent shortly before the date:
