This society offers students at Queen Mary the opportunity to facilitate, develop and improve their mental fitness through; gaining skills, and changing the view of mental fitness, through workshops, information talk and socials!

We also will host fundraising events for the project:talk initiative, supporting the volunteers in the peer support scheme.
