INTERESTED IN BEING PART OF THE TEAM?

We are currently looking for students to join our Committee for the roles listed further down. Stay tuned for when the next by-election will take place!

For more information, send an email to us at mentalhealth@teambcu.co.uk or drop us a message on Instagram and we'll be in touch!
What We Do

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 us at mentalhealth@teambcu.co.uk or on our Instagram page!

Disclaimer

We are only students, and not professionals, therapists, psychologists etc and can only refer you to the right place if need be. We raise awareness about mental health and allow all students to participate in any way and form, including forming an appropriate safe space for you to express yourself. If you are in need of support, please contact the Mental Health and Wellbeing Team at sa.wellbeing@bcu.ac.uk, or visit iCity for more information on student support. Take care of yourself as best as possible, and remember, the help is there. We're all here for you.

Participation & Inclusion Officer Adam Islam
Social & Networking Officer AVAILABLE (By-Election TBC)
Events Coordinator AVAILABLE (By-Election TBC)  
Marketing Directors 2 POSITIONS AVAILABLE (By-Election TBC)

Available Roles

  1. Social & Networking Officer - Responsible for looking after all of our social media accounts and overall online presence, working to ensure students know exactly what we are up to, alongside working with the other available roles and the current Committee to ensure we have students aware of what we do. This student must be experienced in using social media, stories, etc, and willing to commit enough of their time into managing all of our accounts. They will be working closely with the rest of the Officers in order to maximise their ability to commit to their role. Preferrably any student with digital media/marketing knowledge.

  2. Events Coordinator - Responsible for organising, planning and going all out to help us organise consistent events which allow for students to actively participate within the Society. This student must be dedicated to spending time liasioning internally and externally, ensuring we have no room of doubt for anything we plan, as well as eager enough to commit time and effort into helping us. Preferably any student with previous events management experience and/or studying the specific degree, or even experienced with working on events with previous societies. They will be working closely with the rest of the Officers in order to maximise their ability to commit to their role.

  3. Marketing Directors (2 positions) - Responsible for promoting our Society in many ways possible, and creating all of our content, from photos, to posters, to videos and vlogs, to whatever else we could use to help out with the Society. This is as well as ensuring students know who we are, what we do, and more importantly, help us to create a positive image, especially considering how important mental health is to us all. This student must be willing to dedicate as much time and effort as necessary to promote us, but also keep us active through what content we have, in order to ensure that things are going well, and that students know for a fact, that we are the best yet. Preferably a marketing student and/or any student with experience in promotion and marketing/public relations/advertisements, but also a creative mind, so any student with a passion for art/digital media/graphics/photography/videography as these are key to this role! They will be working closely with the rest of the Officers, in particular Social & Networking, in order to maximise their ability to commit to their role. 

By-election dates will be confirmed very soon so stay tuned and keep an eye on all of our pages! :)
