INCLUDE (Inclusive Network Connecting and Linking University Disabled Employees) Disabled Staff Network: Launched by the Vice-Chancellor on 2 February 2015 as part of the University's continued commitment to creating an inclusive environment for all. Membership is open to all staff and the group aims to promote the value of disabled staff and improve their working environment by raising awareness, sharing good practice and providing a forum for ideas and issues.
We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. They can both change throughout our lives and in response to external factors. The Department of Chemistry is supportive not only of helping staff and students when they feel unwell, but also of helping everyone to develop positive wellbeing and emotional health.
