    Lobby the University to implement 24/7 mental health support

    Current
      During the COVID-19 pandemic, students and young people have seen one of the worst declines in mental health. The isolation and loneliness that this causes needs to be addressed amongst our student base, especially with freshers returning from the Christmas break. At the start of the year the university hired a Reslife staff member to cover four nights a week, with plans to bring on another to cover the other three. This staff member has since left, and either positions have yet to be filled, leaving us in the same situation we started with. Mental health support and first aid is vital, and with the implementation of new Wellbeing Officers in our clubs and societies, we need to be equipping them with the best possible services to signpost our students to. I believe it would be in the best interests of the student body to immediately provide this 24/7 support, by making filling those positions a higher priority and providing temporary 24/7 support in the meantime while those positions are filled.
