Why Mind?

Since 2000 mental health problems have increased by nearly 30 per cent among young people. We also know that 75 per cent of mental health problems are established by the age of 24. Mind provides a national voice and local support for anybody experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign against discrimination, fight for better services, and offer information and support. By taking part in twenty-seven27 you’re raising awareness of student mental health and helping us be there for the 27% of us who report a mental health problem while at university.
