Relationships, Education and Mental Health

As part of Bloom: Exeter’s Online Festival For Mental Health Awareness, join us for a discussion about relationships, education and mental health with the Wellcome Centre’s Simon Benham-Clarke.

Evidence from research suggests that improving the relationships young people have can improve their mental health. Some young people lack healthy relationship role models because their parents separate or have relationship breakdowns. More generally we see many examples of unhealthy relationships between people, such as in the thousands of testimonies made public in Everyone’s Invited and Black Lives Matter. As part of a research project funded by the Wellcome Centre at the University of Exeter we explored the perspectives of young people and relationship experts on relationship education including parental separation.

In this session Simon Benham-Clarke, a researcher on this project, will present the research, some possible implications and open the topic for discussion with the audience.

Bring your curious minds, and feel free to get involved with the discussion after Simon’s presentation or simply watch and listen along if you would prefer.
