The Mental Health Society is led by students familiar with, and dedicated to educating about, mental health.as we strongly aim to reduce and remove stigma and taboos that exist about mental health and wellbeing for students or just anyone, regardless of your age, gender, faith, ethnicity, sexuality etc.
Mental health is and should be just as important as your physical health, so we highly aim to provide an open and non-judgemental space where students can learn more about mental health, as well as finding ways to cope with and adapt to their emotions and selves.
Your committee is run by a team of like-minded volunteers that have the necessary and basic knowledge of mental health, who want to work towards helping students feel more comfortable talking about their worries and concerns.
We also have BAME elements within our society, as around 60% of students at BCU fall into this background, so we want to make sure every single student is covered, and that we raise and cover any weak areas that mental health does not effectively work with, as well as use the society to host events and opportunities to promote good mental health.
We are empathetic and are open ears. We all are here for you, and we want you to be comfortable with your emotions and feelings whilst at BCU. Mental health is important to us all, and we must be aware of its existence!
If you have any questions and would like more information about the society and what we have to offer, please feel free to contact Bilal at email@example.com.
