Five years ago, we created The Mental Health Manifesto, where we identified the problems and gaps in the wellbeing of our students and promised to do better as a Union. Now it's time to look back, see how we've changed our attitude and also look forward, on how we can continue to improve and be support you, our students.
What's been done in the past 5 years?
What's coming up?
Can we still do better?
Yes. We can always do better.
Lucy, our Activities Officer (who started the Feel Good campaign) says, "Despite all of our efforts to support students’ mental health and well-being, there is still a need for much more focus on this. It is completely underfunded and not prioritised even with a mental health crisis and a global pandemic".
It's painfully clear that now, we need to band together and do more to better our environment, which starts with our minds. We need your help to do this. Together, we can do more.
