Mental Health Awareness being prioritised for Notts students

bigstock_Brain_Waves_10453853_1University Mental Health and Wellbeing Day and Time To Talk Day are just some of the events that have been organised for this month catered to help Nottingham students.

The issue of mental health has been prominent in the news recently, with well known footballing icon Clarke Carlisle revealing that he attempted to take his own life by jumping in front of a lorry in December.

Time To Talk Day took place a few weeks ago with the main aim of encouraging people to talk more openly about mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety, and removing the stigma attached to such problems.

A National Union of Students (NUS) survey revealed that 26% of those who say they have a mental health problem don’t attempt to get treatment, showing that young adults can be reserved about their personal wellbeing. 65% also say that coursework can be a trigger for stress related illnesses.
