Freedom of Mind LSE: Education

78% percent of university students have experienced a problem with their mental health in the last year. Something needs to change.


Freedom of Mind LSE: Education takes both an industry-wide, and LSE-specific look at the mental health crisis faced by UK universities, and asks where it’s all going wrong. Join us in the LSESU Venue from 5pm on Friday 11th October for 2 very special events discussing higher education.


First up, we have a panel of industry experts lined up to discuss wellbeing across the higher education sector. Comprised of medical professionals, economists, university staff, and a mental health economist, this panel takes a broad look at issues such as academic pressure, isolation, and differing social environments.


Straight after this, from 6pm, we are zooming in on the LSE campus to discuss what LSE could be doing to improve satisfaction and mental wellbeing on campus. With representatives of the LSE Disability and Wellbeing Service, LSE Life, and the LSESU, this is your chance to feedback to the uni about what you think needs to change.
