Students are often facilitating conversations about mental health. Frequently they are doing this as part of a campaign to raise awareness of mental health problems or challenge stigma. This work is fundamental to changing attitudes about mental health. To do this safely, students need a strong understanding of the importance of boundaries. They need to have considered how to talk about mental health sensitively without triggering vulnerable individuals. We run one day training programmes throughout the year to support students to talk about mental health safely.
