My main priority for this year is student mental health. Having Co-Founded Open Mind, a student mental health society at Manchester. I have a holistic plan to improve all aspects of wellbeing, whether you’re LGBTQ, a student of faith, a BME student, or if you just love health and fitness.
My favourite thing about the SU is its inclusivity; you have the opportunity to be around some of the most diverse groups of people from different parts of the world.
Reduce the waiting time for the counselling services by training student mentors via pro bono counselling. Also, give students the control which gender counsellor they want to see.
