Film sees Bristol students speak about mental health
Film sees Bristol students speak about mental health - BBC News
Nathan is a year-old arts student. He had depression before he came to university, and felt well-supported by his family, but it has been difficult living and studying away from home. So you need your friends, which is tricky because they are busy and stressed themselves. Nathan who did not want his real name to be used has a history of self-harming and has received support from the student mental health services, which he says are over-subscribed. When he visited them three weeks ago to try to get counselling, he was told there was a waiting list and he would not be seen until after Christmas. He was offered a minute drop-in session but he says he feels he needs more than that. Nathan is a student at the University of Bristol, where it emerged this week that three teenagers, all believed to be first-year students, had died within weeks of starting their studies this term.

NSUN are a network of people and groups living in England who have and do experience mental distress and want to change things for the better. By connecting our members, and amplifying their experiences and aspirations, we influence policy, practice and perception, in order to reduce disadvantage and discrimination and stop people being ignored and isolated. We provide a safe space for people to confidentially share their needs and experiences of services, while we campaign for change by holding local providers to account. BIMHN also acts against discrimination, and promotes a positive understanding of mental health through education.
