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.
