Who are we?

Headucate is one of the most active, innovative and exciting student societies at the University of East Anglia. It was created by a small group of medical students which has grown substantially to become one of the largest UEA societies. We host a variety of popular events throughout the year with the aim to raise mental health awareness and tackle associated stigma. As a society we openly welcome any student, from any course. We were voted 'New Society of the Year' in 2012/13 by the UEA student union. This is an exciting opportunity to meet new people whilst actively making a difference.

What are our aims?

  • Equip students to improve their own mental wellbeing
  • To raise awareness of mental health and a variety of disorders within the UEA community to be able to reduce stigma and help end discrimination of mental illnesses.
  • To raise awareness of mental health amongst children and teenagers through teaching and workshops
  • To gain new skills, help other people and make a difference and be able to add to your CV!

What do we do?

  • We provide our members with all the training evenings twice a year including teaching with a local GP, to be able to provide them with the skills to run our school workshops
  • Some of our most popular events throughout the year include Pets as Therapy, Art therapy and socials including the Pub Quiz!
  • During Mental Health Awareness Week, we hold fantastic and thought evoking talks with top- class speakers on issues surrounding psychiatry, neurology, psychology and mental health. Last year we were honoured to host Professor Tom Shakespeare and Mrs Harpreet Bassi.
  • In conjunction with our school workshops, we conduct research to show how effective they are and there are opportunities to get involved with posters to present at conferences
