To raise awareness, tackle stigma, signpost for additional information and enhance the student experience for those who suffer from a mental health illness within Birmingham City University.
We are a mixed age group of students who have all been on the mental health first aiders course. We have all been affected by mental health illness in some way, and so we are passionate about removing the stigma associated with mental health illness and by supporting students to access support if they need to. We provide a service where a MHFA is assigned to support, from attending lectures to just checking in. All information is on moodle and appointments can be booked through there.
