Having completed Phase 2 of our project roll-out last month, students from six of our educational settings attended the largest student steering group to date, at the Ipswich Waterfront Innovation Centre (IWIC) on Wednesday 7 November.  The meeting was also attended by 7 Suffolk Councillors who have financially supported the initiative through their annual locality budgets or through third party activities.  Some very nice words were said about our publication…

Student Life is a hugely important way for students to speak out about mental health issues and make informed decisions. Raising awareness and ending the stigma surrounding mental health will make a great contribution to students health and wellbeing. Locality funding will ensure that students are able to be involved and benefit from this exciting and life enhancing initiative. I am very pleased to be able to support Student Life.

Student Life has opened up a very much needed debate on mental health with young people.  My family has been caught up in the horrors of this and it is very difficult to understand and so to be able to watch the film made by the students telling their stories has been a great help to me.  I am very honoured to be Patron and so pleased that the magazine is going from strength to strength.

I am impressed with the commitment of students in producing such a valuable publication. As an Ipswich Councillor, I am increasingly concerned for the wellbeing of young people; having support and advice is essential. Student Life offers that support, from students themselves who know better than adults what it’s like growing up with today’s pressures. I am looking forward to seeing how the funding I have offered Student Life publications helps young people in Ipswich.
