There are many ways that students can get involved to promote mental wellbeing.

The Student Mental Health Strategy Group is made up of students and staff, plus external members from the NHS, North Wales Police and the University Chaplaincy.
They meet three times a year and support those who experience mental health difficulties in order to create an inclusive community. If you are a student and interested in becoming a representative for the Student Mental Health Strategy Group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
