Hi, I’m a University student living in Wolverhampton. I have found that with my minimum student loan I struggle finding the money for prescriptions especially when my student loan is just about to come in. 

As someone that struggles with mental health, and just my health in general I find it hard to set aside money for prescriptions when I’m running short. Sometimes I just don’t go to the doctors in hopes that whatever is wrong with me will clear up on it’s own.

I understand that prescriptions are free for certain age groups but a lot of these people are living at home so a lot of their expenses are covered. As a university student I have found it increasingly difficult to buy food, pay rent, put fuel in my car and pay for prescriptions. 

My goal is to increase the awareness of university students struggling to get basic prescriptions such as inhalers and medication regarding mental health.
