The fight for student mental health 

More than two-thirds of young people with mental health problems told us their mental health has gotten worse since the start of the pandemic.

Chances are you or some of your peers will have a mental health problem right now.

Last year you raised over a million pounds to help students struggling have somewhere to turn for advice and support.

We are here to support you too. Visit our pages about student mental health.

We all know that exercise is good for our bodies. Being physically active has some great benefits for mental health. Being active can help you sleep better, lift your mood and help you manage stress and anxiety. It also allows you to connect with others and build your self-esteem.
