STUDENT VOLUNTEERING: MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
Students had an idea that they could help support each other with wellbeing and mental health concerns.
WHAT YOU SAID
"Create a student volunteering service, to help people with mental health problems and not only to promote wellbeing, mindfulness but anything that can help students. All the Psychology students have to do placements - I thought it would be better to volunteer on campus instead of going elsewhere; we would get to help other students."
HOW IT WORKS
1. Students submit ideas during Change Week.
2. Teams of students gather to hack solutions to the biggest problems.
3. Teams pitch their ideas to a panel of University big wigs.
4. SU Officers and teams work with staff to make the ideas a reality.
