Welcome to Support Our Services


We are a University mental health campaign group that focuses on ensuring that the University provides adequate and excellent support for its most vulnerable students. It is out goal to make sure that the University is held to account regarding its mental health services. We do this by holding regular open meetings, attending counselling focus groups, and organising protests.


Whilst that is our primary goal, we also want to address issues with regards to stigma, reaching out for help, and societal issues surrounding mental health. We want to create a community in which we can all feel able to discuss mental health, support each other, and feel empowered to use our voices to make changes to University services.


We welcome everyone, regardless of background, status or political view, because we believe that everyone has mental health, no matter who you are. That is why our membership is free and open to all; if you would like to make a small donation to the cause by buying a solidarity membership (only £3) that would be fantastic, but this does not grant you any special privileges.


What have we done so far?

  • Organised a 500-strong mental health march in May 2018 which attracted wide media attention and kickstarted the group
  • Ran Mindfest, a mental health festival, in October 2018 in collaboration with the Wellbeing Network
  • Sent our demands to the University, which were fed in to the University's mental health strategy
  • Met with Senior Management to discuss our demands
  • Organised the People Not Profit mental health march in November 2018 along with other campaigning societies demanding improved mental health services, lower rents in halls, and an end to the 'hostile environment' towards Tier 4 visa students on campus
  • Participated in a Counselling Partnership Group run by the head of the Mental Health Advisory Service
  • Due to our campaigning, the University's mental health strategy reflects all of our demands, the Fitness to Study policy has been drastically reformed, the University will roll out suicide awareness training for all staff and will look to extend this to students, and the Student Services budget is protected for the next academic year

We have achieved so much, but still have a lot more to fight for, and currently we are campaigning for the University to sign a Zero Suicide Pledge. We'd love it if you joined us, came along to our open meetings, and helped shape the University with us.
