The SRSH project
Our groups are run by trained student volunteers and offer a confidential space to talk about life, university and whatever helps you keep your life on track.
Groups are usually run every other week during term time.
We run groups so that students experiencing mental health problems have access to a supportive environment in which they can talk about life, university and what they are doing to keep their lives on track.
Did you know that over 25% of students are experiencing mental distress? That is an awful lot of students!
We know that when life gets tough students are more likely to talk to their peers than anyone else. So we train student volunteers so that they can provide a supportive environment to help you talk with other students going through the same experiences.
Will our conversation be kept confidential?
Our groups have a strong confidentiality policy. Except under extreme circumstances, everything you discuss will be kept confidential.
Who are groups for?
Our groups are run for university students over the age of 18. Our project is pro-recovery. Our groups are NOT an alternative to formal treatment, but may be a good step into treatment or a useful add on to treatment.
The groups are run by our trained student volunteers. They are not trained councilors and will not provide advice; they are there to provide encouragement, empathy and support.
“The support group was absolutely amazing and I think it's the single biggest contributor to my recovery this year.”
“I find your groups really useful to help me stay on track to recovery. You're doing a great job and the support is really useful. It's a great service to offer and I've definitely benefited from it.”
