University gave me, and many of my colleagues depression. Like suicidal thoughts. It's also ruined lives and marriages. The combination of low worth, high debt, lack of opportunities have driven hundreds of student's to the edge. In the past the SU has laughed this off by saying the dog is a therapist. I'm sorry but how on earth is a dog a therapist? Grow up. UoB, UCB, BCU, Cov, UoW, Warwick all have on-site appointment/drop-in thereapists. Does a student have to actually kill themself on campus for WLV to get one? So yeah, hopefully this will raise awareness of how dire the situation is at the University that students are literally driven to suicide.
