Part of the Westminster Welcome Festival, this event is exclusively for our new students.

Research suggests that only 3.5% of students disclose mental health difficulties to their university, but 75% of students who are struggling disclose to their friends. This shows that friends can play a key role in supporting each other’s mental health. That’s why we’re running free online Look After Your Mate workshops every month for all students.

What will it cover?

  • how to spot warning signs
  • practical tips to support a mate
  • how to signpost to the right services
  • setting your own boundaries

What will you gain?

  • confidence to support your mates
  • knowledge of services available
  • understanding of how to support your own wellbeing
  • enhanced employability through transferrable skills eg communication and reflective listening skills
