On Thursday (1st May) the Union will be signing the Time to Change pledge. Time to Change is a campaign which aims to get rid of mental health stigma amongst students and staff and get people to talk freely about mental health issues. The Community and Students Rights Officer has been working with our Peer Support Groups to draft our action plan. The action plan shows how we plan to tackle the stigma of mental health, more information about the pledge and action plan will be available at the pledge signing event and afterwards .
The pledge will be signed on behalf of the whole Union, students and staff are welcome to email me with their thoughts on if there is a gap in mental health support or provision that they’ve personall experienced.
