Being a university student in Bristol, I have been conscious to the high suicide rates in the last 18 months within the students in the city alone, and knew that there was a fundamental element missing, despite what universities across the UK currently have in place.
Mental health struggles within students in the UK is on the increase. Research has stated that 1 in 4 students in university will be battling with their mental health and a lot more students are coming forward and feel alot more open to prospects of discussing their mental health challenges while at university. With that being said, Reach is here to tackle this growing issue by providing the students with as much support as possible.
Reach UK aims to be a student led organisation, present in every university in the state, which caters to and provides support to students battling with their mental health of any form and to any degree. While equally promoting the wellbeing facilities that universities around the country offer, we hope to be able to simultaneously build the students emotional resilience and strength, social skills and interaction ability and various other skills which would help the students overcome various obstacles and tackle various situations which they may be faced with during their time at university and beyond. This will be achieved through various interactive workshops focusing on a wide range of topics (money management, relationships, maintaining a work life balance, etc) activities such as cooking classes, sports related activities, charitable doings for the local community, days out etc, and opportunities such as talks, conferences, academic/sports related opportunities, etc which Reach will provide.
All the above will equally be achieved through the help of our: RM's (Reach' Managers), RPM's (Reach' Personal Mentors), RA's (Reach' Ambassadors), and RV's (Reach' Volunteers).
Therefore we need YOUR help in investing in the wellbeing of the future leaders of tomorrow.
With that, we will be able to fulfil our mission of helping students build their bridge towards a brighter future.
