Within the context of austerity, in last 4years student suicides for women have doubled and have increased by 1/3 for men.

As Women’s officer, last year I set up a campaign called DrawYourOwnLines. The project was aimed at giving students information needed to challenge sexually aggressive behaviour.

  • If elected, I will set up a similar campaign to raise awareness of the growing problem of student mental health.

The role requires someone who is acute to the many difficulties students face: issues around being a transgender student, or from a poor background or discriminated group as well as problems with housing/finance.
