ACM London students’ Mental Health is being neglected. Our student support is not being prioritised, the one person that is there to offer their time is only given a few sessions a week to cater for hundreds of students.

Mental health is a growing concern for young people. The number one killer for men under 35 is suicide,1 in 4 people suffer from mental health issues every year and our university is failing to provide support for the students who really need it. 

It is appalling that after our previous student counseller left for reasons unclear to us, and her replacement hasn’t been given the opportunity to support as many people as needed and can only offer an unaffordable ‘student’ price for private sessions. 

We asking people to sign if they agree we are in need of more help and hopefully out university will listen. We need a full time counsellor or alike to be on hand at all times, one in which we can reach out to and who can aid us at any time and not if we are lucky enough to be on the short list to get a session once a week. It’s not enough.
