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'

  • Our Welfare Officer and Equality and Diversity Officer will be holding 'Office Hours' where you can sit and chat or just ask for some advice
  • We will be holding a campaign this year surrounding the idea of well-being and recognising the factors which lead to well-being and positive mental health.
  • We will be going in to local schools to deliver talks on mental health, knowing as we do that young people need to be informed about Mental Health
  • We will be hosting fundraising evenings throughout the year which members will recieve exclusive discounts on
  • 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!

Why join Mind Matters?

The Mind Matters Society are a friendly and supportive society. We have regular social events and often go to other events together too around Leeds. 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.
