Let's Talk


We know that 1 in 4 of us will struggle with our mental health each year and many more will be affected by the stigma surrounding mental illness, but lots of us struggle to find the words to talk about how we're feeling. 


That's why we organised Mental Health and Wellbeing Week, from 13 - 17 November 2017, with a whole range of events and activities planned which you can see below.


Mental Health and Wellbeing Week 2017 was a huge success with over 50 events and activities across the University. However, one week was never going to be enough:


  • If you have any questions about looking after your own mental health, supporting a friend, or mental health more generally, check out our list of resources and services.


  • If you have a mental illness and would like to build a community with your peers, consider joining the Students' Association's Disabled Students' Campaign which exists to provide support and representation for students like you. 


  • Keep talking to your friends and family about how you're feeling, how they're doing, and ways you could be supporting each other.
