Undertaking any role where you are supporting someone’s wellbeing can be intimidating, but effectively supporting our researchers’ mental health doesn’t need to be done in isolation.

In the short video below, we hear from Suzie Shapiro, PGR Mental Health Adviser, who shares three top tips on effectively supporting researchers’ mental health and wellbeing, alongside an overview of key student support services, including ChaplaincyDisability Service and the Counselling Service.
