Your chance to tell the university what you think


Bristol University students are being encouraged to fill out a new mental health and well-being survey before the deadline of Monday 14th May.

The last survey was commissioned by the 2016/17 Faculty Representative for Health Sciences, John Gilbert, to "investigate help-seeking behaviours and identify potential areas for improvement".

Jack McAlinden, a representative from the faculty told Epigram that "The results of the [previous] survey have changed the way the Faculty looks at mental wellbeing support."
