Positive Minds is for students, by students, to encourage everyone to feel happy throughout their studies and uni life in general by supporting all students with any issues they may have, I.e. anxiety, making friends etc. We're a brand new society and had a great response from students on Facebook, the Freshers Fair and our recent meet ups. Throughout the year we're aiming to have socials in a friendly, relaxed environment where students can speak and relate to like minded peers, make friends and speak to us in a confidential and positive environment.
We're also planning to put together society nights and trips for students - away from clubbing or partying - to encourage them to make friends and avoid loneliness. Alongside this we're in the process of organising special workshops with charities targeting specific worries that students have, including how to cope with anxiety, particular mental health worries, and mindfulness to name a few.
All students are welcome to join, there are no formalities with our society and certainly no barriers. We hope to make an impact on students lives especially those who worry most and help them to feel more positive.
