Student Mental Health Champions

Our Student Mental Health Champion programme helps promote good mental health.

Our champions help to raise awareness around mental health and the support available. As a champion you can get involved in wellbeing activities and events, developing new ideas and raising awareness through social media and the Healthy NTU blog.

We provide training and guidance for all champions.

If you would like to chat to a Student Mental Health Champion you can find our champions at our latest peer-led activities on our events sidebar on the main homepage. These activities often include things like rock painting, mindfulness walks and craft sessions and are a nice relaxing way to meet others and ask the champions about what wellbeing support is available.
