Student mental health awareness

Over 30% of medical students experience mental health problems, 80% of them struggle to get support (Student BMJ, 2015).

To mark mental health awareness week (8th – 14th May) events are taking place in medical schools throughout the UK as part of the mental health campaign. Our aim is to help medical students understand that feelings such as stress, anxiety or depression should not be ignored. However big or small you believe your problems are, they need to be talked about.

It’s everyone’s responsibility to listen when someone needs it most.
