To raise awareness, tackle stigma, signpost for additional information and enhance the student experience for those who suffer with a mental health issue within Birmingham City University.
We are a mixed age group of students who have all been on the mental health first aiders course (MHFA) . We have all been affected by mental health in some way, so we are passionate about removing the stigma associated and supporting students to access support if they need to. We provide a service where a MHFA volunteer is assigned to support, this could be from meeting for a cuppa and a chat to just checking in. All information is on moodle and appointments can also be booked or you can contact us through BCU MHFA social media.
