Leading and award-winning student mental health specialist, Dr Dominique Thompson has written the first four books in a new mental health series specifically aimed at university students.
The Student Wellbeing Series launched on 16th April 2019, with the first four books in the series: Depression; Anxiety; Staying Safe; and Resourcefulness at University. These illustrated, easy-to-read pocket guides offer advice, practical tips and useful exercises for students, ensuring that they have the tools they need to understand the sources of their particular mental health issue and take steps to reclaim their life from its debilitating effects. The books include direct involvement from students themselves, and Trigger partnered with several universities to ensure the books were developed with student input from the outset. An additional four books are scheduled for publication covering issues such as eating disorders; loneliness; stress; and supporting friends with mental health issues.
There is nothing else on the market that is written specifically to address the mental health and wellbeing needs of university students. This series will fill an important and large gap in the global Higher Education market.
Dr. Thompson has worked with university students for nearly two decades, and in 2017 contributed towards a landmark report on the nation’s student wellbeing, as well as being involved in the Mental Wellbeing in Higher Education working group of Universities UK. Dr Thompson now works with universities across the UK on their mental health strategies, as well as providing training to university staff. She recently gave a TEDx talk: ‘What I learnt from 78,000 GP consultations with university students’, which you can watch here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=gt-ToFPHCkI
Series editor, Dr Dominique Thompson said “University can be a challenging time for many people, as well as full of fun and new opportunities. I am really excited to be writing this new book series to enable students to be as prepared for their new lives as possible, with top tips from 20 years at the front line of student wellbeing, and practical advice, as well as help knowing what to watch out for and when to seek help with emotional difficulties, anxiety and depression should they arise. Students will love having these short, but relevant and useful guides to dip into!“
