Students

Student Life supports the mental health of young people as they go through education, into employment. Helping young people to:

  • Participate in the production of a print and digital lifestyle publication heavily focused on mental health as well as 15 other core topics.
  • Train as Mental Health Ambassadors to improve knowledge, support their peers and introduce best practice in the relevant education setting. 
  • Develop a supportive structure to other young people, providing training to develop capabilities.
  • Develop their skills, both socially and emotionally, to enable them to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals. With the aim of supporting the next generation to have a less stigmatised outlook on mental health.

We offer collaboration on our projects to young people in high schools, sixth forms, colleges and universities across Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex and to ensure inclusion for all young people, we engage with students in alternative provision (AP) settings, including pupil referral units (PRU’s).
