POhWER were invited by the University of Greenwich to host a display stand at their Medway Campus as part of ‘World Mental Health Day’.

With the Universities’ Student Well Being Service and Chaplaincy, we helped raise awareness of support services both on and off site.

We asked students if they knew how to access well being/mental health services, 58% were unsure. We asked how they would reach out for support, 86% of students would use the internet to research service provision and access tools and resources.

Students were made aware of the support on site and  were keen to understand the role of a Mental Health Advocate. Engagement was light hearted and fun. We  look forward to continue working with the team on Medway Campus.
