Mental Health Matters Society
Political, Campaigning or CharityJoin This Group
Whether it be through personal experiences or the knowledge of others whose lives may have been impacted, mental health affects us all in various different ways. Up to 1 in 4 people are affected by a form of mental illness at some point in their lives.
MHM is an award-winning society committed to raising awareness of mental health issues. We seek to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and fight for better funding for mental health services both locally and nationally.
Our meetings are varied, but in the past, we have run mindfulness sessions, collaborations with other societies, and performances with SUTCo. We also work closely with mental health charities such as Mind, BEAT, and SYEDA. Check our Facebook page for updates, or if you click here, you can also sign up to our weekly email newsletter.

All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
