Need a break from your exams? We all know how hard exam time can be, and how easy it is to get stressed out with them so why not come and spend some time with us relaxing, watching films, doing crafts and playing with cute dogs! Your VP Welfare has organised Exam De-Stress Week in line with Mental Health week to ensure you get the support and help you need during this busy time, but also to raise awareness of mental health issues. Let’s say #nomore to mental health stigma!
