Her Royal Highness, The Princess of Wales visited Nottingham on 11th October 2023 as part of a series of engagements across the country to mark World Mental Health Day
It was so good seeing the importance of looking after your mental health being asked for from such a significant place and figure, and highlighting how important it is for students
Her Royal Highness is a strong advocate for the importance of providing young people with the support needed to identify and manage their emotions and mental wellbeing.
Simply talking about our mental health is just not enough.
During her visit the Princess also got a chance to meet students from NTU’s extra-curricular societies and their mental health champions, reflecting the importance of taking time for activities that support mental wellbeing and highlighting the variety of extra-curricular societies available to students.
We are extremely honoured to welcome The Princess of Wales to Nottingham Trent University to highlight the importance of mental wellbeing as part of World Mental Health Day. We were proud to demonstrate how NTU supports students with their mental health by focusing on participation and helping them to develop a sense of belonging and connectivity to their community. Her Royal Highness was able to participate in various activities with students during her visit. This included a step in circle, where together they shared experiences to help build confidence and to proactively manage mental wellbeing, which the students found extremely beneficial. We want to thank Her Royal Highness for her passion and interest in a topic that affects many of our University community.
