Why join Mind Matters?

The Mind Matters Society are a friendly and supportive society. We have regular social events and campaigns.often The Mind Matters Society is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in something amazing, with the potential to shape the future for people with mental health problems. We believe that the stigma associated with mental health problems undermines recovery and serves as an affront to our community's core values of equality and fairness. 

About us

The Mind Matters Society is a group of people who believe in a new approach to Mental Health. Whether it is through providing student-led support services, holding talks in local schools, hosting fundraisers for Mental Health charities or running campaigns which change people's attitudes towards Mental Health this society depends on our members to deliver on the LUU promise to make each student 'love their time at Leeds'

We aim to provide a warm and supportive atmosphere that is accessible to anyone: whether you have personal experience of mental health problems, are close to someone who is experiencing mental health problems or are simply interested in mental health! To do this, our services include:

  • Mind Matters Welfare Hour Drop In - A confidential service with a Mind Matters Welfare Officer and a member of the Union's Rethink Support Group where you can talk about anything that's on your mind, and can be signposted on to useful services or information.
  • Student Minds Support Group - A peer led support group for students with eating disorders
  • Emotional Support Group - A peer led support group, open to students at all levels, for those who are experiencing mental health problems, are concerned about their mental wellbeing, or just need a safe space to talk
  • Welfare Email - A confidential listening and signposting service: uniMMS@leeds.ac.uk

As well as providing welfare services for students, throughout the year we will also be:

  • holding a campaign to increase the awareness of mental health
  • delivering talks on mental health in schools 
  • hosting fundraising events
  • hosting a conference on mental health around campus
