Abstract

This collection of Burning Issues has been compiled by the Mental Health in Higher Education project (mhhe) and the Higher Education Academy (subject centres) Special Interest Group for Mental Health (MHSIG). Together we aim to increase networking and the sharing of approaches to learning and teaching about mental health, across the disciplines in higher education. 150 educators came together at Lancaster University in 2010 for the ‘Living and Learning, Learning and Teaching: mental health in higher education’ conference. That event drew on our joint work in building networks and connections. It bore witness to the benefits of sharing ideas, across the disciplines, about learning and teaching in the area of mental health. mhhe and the MHSIG are both projects of the Higher Education Academy, with the Health Sciences and Practice subject centre taking a lead role in relation to the MHSIG. The Academy is currently restructuring its organisation and work. Building on the conference, and discussions at the MH SIG over recent years, we were keen to take a snapshot of current issues in learning and teaching about mental health and consider how networking might be supported in the future.
