Nearly 80,000 young people suffer from severe depression in the United Kingdom.

Many students have experienced some form of depression and anxiety throughout their lives. Mind of the student aims to reduce the stigma and introduce the conversation on these important topics.

Our workshop day is designed to not only educate students on what depression is, but help them understand how it can make you feel and what can help if you are experiences any signs and symptoms.


1 in 6 young people will experience an anxiety problem.

Additionally, young people are up to 80% more likely to report symptoms of anxiety than adults. The amount of young people that experience anxiety issues is continuously increasing. Although we cannot solve everyone’s problems, mind of the student aims to reduce the stigma attached towards anxiety, which allows for the conversation to be more widely acknowledged. If we can encourage our students to be more open about how they are feelings, then we can help fight suffering in silence.


Professionals can only tell other people your information if you say they can, or if they have to.

Many students that we work with are worried that their information is not kept private and this has been known to affect their ability to reach out.

Our workshop day aims to educate students on what can and cannot be shared, limiting their biases on reaching out.

Social Media

Younger people say that 4/5 major social platforms make their anxieties worse.

Our workshop day aims to reduce the stigma attached to using social media, and educating students on the realities of using social media, including exercises displacing truths on edited media and student case studies expressing how they feel towards using social media.

Exam Stress

Every student experience some type of stress towards their exams. This is a normal part of growing and can affect other parts of our daily lives such as sleeping or motivation.

Our workshop days are designed to equip students with useful tips and techniques that they can use in their everyday lives, to combat the normal stressors towards exam.

Workshop Day Feedback

“The facilitators were relatable for the students, they were open about their own struggles. They took the time to listen to even the really quiet students at the back of the hall. Taking the time to approach them and listen. The booklet handout was well received with many of the students holding onto them. the booklets were well put together without overloading the students with information. Comments from the students after the presentation was were all positive. With the students volunteering positive feedback. including how useful they found and how good it was. I was very impressed myself too.”
