To mark Mental Health Awareness Week on 10 – 16 May, we’re raising awareness of the brilliant new support services available on Student Space.
Run by Student Minds, Student Space is a platform providing a wealth of wellbeing and mental health resources to students during the pandemic. They have launched a new collection of tailored services, specifically for those that may have been heavily affected by the past year. It now includes these free, dedicated services:
- Support for Black students
- Support for Muslim students
- Support for Punjabi students
- Support for trans students
- Support for working-class students
- Support for students hearing voices
- Support for students with OCD and BDD (body dysmorphic disorder)
Student Space also includes a wide range of advice and information such as studying during coronavirus, lockdown and self-isolation, grief and loss, life as a disabled student, managing money and personal student stories.
On top of this, the platform provides free, one-to-one support on anything affecting your wellbeing. Whether it is mental health, your studies, money, housing or relationships, you can speak to someone via text, webchat, phone or email.
