Starting conversations about wellbeing and mental health

Our fortnightly events are open to all. Every other Thursday we run activities or speaker-led talks, followed by informal discussions.

We run these sessions every other Thursday, 6-8pm, in the Cruciform.

Our fortnightly events are here to help you understand different aspects of mental health, be it for you or your peers. The events are designed to support you to develop and maintain good personal wellbeing within the pressures of medical school. 

We have informal discussions that provide a warm and judgment-free space for support and conversation, and to share experiences and feelings with people who understand.
