Leeds University Union: Mental Health
Mental Health has always been something of a taboo subject in the UK, but did you know that 1 in 4 of us will experience mental health problems at some point in our lives? With World Mental Health Day just around the corner, we hear from students at Leeds University who want to share their experiences of mental illness in the hope they can reduce the stigma surrounding the subject. A huge thanks to the team at Leeds University Union and the Mind Matters society who contributed towards the making of that film.
