Student Minds "Look After Your Mate" Workshop and Discussion with FREE PIZZA! 5pm-7pm, Room 119

We know that most students talk to their friends when they

 are having a tough time. We can talk to friends in confidence and they help us to keep challenges in perspective. The truth is that university can be fantastic, but life's curveballs still get thrown at us and in these situations we really need our friends to be there for us. 

We will be running a 'Look After Your Mate' workshop with an accredited trainer which will give you the necessary tips and tools to support a friend in need, as well as self-care. The workshop includes:


  • Spotting signs in a friend
  • How to start a conversation
  • How to support a friend: listening and learning
  • Signposting to support
  • Looking after your own wellbeing as a supporter

The workshop is completely free to all University of Cambridge students, and we will have pizza and refreshments available. 

To sign up, please register here.
