Hi losers, as your Social and Events Officer I am constantly updated on the socials of the other colleges because I have to sit through a boring meeting on Wednesdays. Luckily, this means I can review these socials for you so you don’t have to go.
New estimates claim that during their lives, 1 in 3 people will suffer from a mental health disorder. In spite of these staggering figures, there still remains a huge social stigma surrounding mental conditions. Every day people face discrimination from family, friends and society as a whole for something that they have no option but to suffer from. As someone who has suffered from mental illness for a long time, I have felt how hurtful people’s comments can be and how much it can actually hinder personal recovery. This needs to stop.
What do you want from your new JCR? What campaigns do you want us to run? What socials do you want us to organise? Which charities should we support? How should we support you?
