Coping on Campus

Coping on Campus

We’re building an online movement that helps support students through uni stress. Become a mental health campaigner at your university.

Why we’re campaigning

Even though university is supposed to be the best time of your life, 92% of students say they have experienced feelings of mental distress.

An unhappy university experience and poor mental health can create a cycle that may continue well beyond university into adulthood. We want to break this cycle with our #CopingOnCampus movement.

Our #CopingOnCampus resources <link> contains everything you need to become a campaigner for better student mental health.

Did you know?

20% of university students consider themselves to have a mental health problem.

Our solution

We want you to share our #CopingOnCampus zine with your friends and fellow students. It includes:

  • stats about uni stress and student mental health
  • real life stories from bloggers who understand how you’re feeling and have been there themselves
  • tips for beating uni stress to post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat
  • A guide to campaigning for better mental health services at your university.
I was diagnosed with PTSD and anxiety during my final year of undergraduate studies. Without the help of student services (particularly the mental health and wellbeing team) I wouldn't have had the confidence to complete my course, then return and study my Masters
