Time to Change
1200: Jaime-Lee and Darren Clarke are signing the Time to Change pledge in the Union Reception.
Time to Change is a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health.
The Students’ Union are going to sign the Employer Pledge. When we sign the Employer Pledge we demonstrate our commitment to change how we think and act about mental health in the workplace and all over campus and make sure that anybody facing these problems feel supported.
Time to Connect
Jaime-Lee will be in the Res Life and on campus accommodation to promote the Look After Your Mate campaign and with Res Life, GreenPad and the Student Advice Centre.
Time to get Active
