A further more detailed update will follow, but we are delighted to report the success of the recent Graduate Wellbeing in the City conference. Kindly hosted by the Bank of England, this event facilitated discussions between students and graduate workers, university vice-chancellors and CMHA member graduate recruiters.
Organised by an exciting partnership between the City Mental Health Alliance, Student Minds, the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, Universities UK and MHFA England, the event focused upon enabling universities and employers to better understand the transition from an education setting to the workplace. Delegates heard from Chris Salmon, executive director of the Bank of England and Brian Heyworth, Global Head of Client Strategy at HSBC Global Asset Management whilst very real honest stories and experiences were shared by panel participants, with keynotes from business leaders.
Following the recent research undertaken by Student Minds in association with Kings College London, Dr Nicola Bryom presented headline results collated form more than 500 participants.
