The support group is a student and staff volunteer lead initiative that provides community members (both student and staff) with a safe, confidential and informal space that encourages but does not pressure members to speak about their mental health.
It is a project that aims to fill the gap between not seeking help and seeking professional help, which can be daunting at times.
Amidst the on-going Cost of Living situation, the group aims to connect and de-isolate members from their communities and promote a positive outlook on the future.
The group operates under a trust policy between users. Users are expected to honour the code of confidentiality and should not disclose anything discussed during the sessions with third parties.
We ask users to not disclose names to avoid revealing information that might put volunteers and users in a conflict of interest and in order to remain an objective outlook.
A ‘get out clause’ is offered.
