  1. President – World Mental Health Day, specifically:

‘That the President, for World Mental Health day in 2018, needs to create a campaign with others highlighting the following:

-the services available for students such as Nightline, Counselling, PAT’s etc

-That the SU sees the person rather than the mental illness and that it is an open and welcoming community.

-A petition or other form of activism to try and secure an additional counsellor due to excessive and therefore ineffective waiting times.
