Starting conversations about wellbeing and mental health

Welcome to our
Fortnightly Events

Our fortnightly events are open to all. Every other Thursday we run speaker-led talks, followed by informal discussions. We have variety of speakers coming in to talk about a range of important topics surrounding mental health.

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

Our fortnightly events are here to help you understand and learn about different aspects of mental health. They also give you opportunities to hear to about people’s personal experiences, how they’ve coped and the lessons they’ve learned. Our events are designed to support you to develop and maintain good personal wellbeing and ways to cope with the pressures of medical school. In addition, our fortnightly events provide a safe and non-judgmental space for support and conversation and to share any problems you may be having with people who understand.
