Just a quick update from me. Over Christmas the Officers launched a volunteering program called befrienders. Firstly just want to say thank you to all the students who have applied. Those who have applied to be a mental health and wellbeing ambassador will be working closly with me.
The mental health and wellbeing ambassadors will be offering peer to peer support for students suffering low level mental health and wellbeing problems this can be done by attending one of drops ins to have individual peer to peer support or by coming together as a larger group. befrienders will also be supporting other wellbeing activities at the SU such as spring survival and well@wolves activities. Whilst increasing awareness of mental health and wellbeing issues to reduce stigma associated with mental health. We are increasing support for students whilst you are stuyding.
So if you ever just need a friendly listening ear make sure you pop in to talk to one of our befrienders.
