Are you passionate about mental health and wellbeing?

 

Mental health and wellbeing is a concern for all students and universities, and is an area that often makes news headlines. This panel brings together current and former students with impressive backgrounds of student activism and lobbying around this topic. Our guest speakers will be sharing how they got started with student activism, what they achieved and how it has shaped their following careers. Covering issues of counselling and university support, sexual violence and discrimination on campus, reproductive rights and student loneliness, we will be talking all things wellbeing and activism

 

If you think this is something you could get around here at Herts, join us on the night to get some great insight from our panel
