Look After Your Mate -Online Workshop

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 mates.

This shows that friends can play a key role in supporting each other’s mental health.

That’s why the University are running free online Look After Your Mate workshops for all students on Wednesday 26 May, 2 - 4.30 pm and Thursday 27 May, 10.30 am - 1 pm.
