The University and Students’ Union are running free ‘Look After Your Mate’ training sessions for all students at the University.

Student Minds

Research suggests that only 3.5 per cent of students disclose mental health difficulties to their university, but 75 per cent of students who are struggling disclose to their mates. This shows that friends can play a key role in supporting each other’s mental health. That’s why Student Minds have created ‘Look After Your Mate’ workshops for 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?
