Who we are
Student Minds is the UK’s student mental health charity. We empower students and members of the university community to develop the knowledge, confidence and skills to look after their own mental health, support others and create change.
We train students and staff in universities across the UK to deliver student-led peer support interventions as well as research-driven workshops and campaigns. We also deliver research on student mental health and by working collaboratively across sectors, we share best practice to ensure that decisions about mental health are made based on evidence and students’ preferences.
Together we will transform the state of student mental health so that all in higher education can thrive.
Our trustee board plays a vital role in enabling us to achieve the charity's objectives - providing accountability, oversight and governance to help us achieve our goals. With a diverse range of experiences, our board is made up of a mixture of experts from across the charity, higher education, business and health care sectors.
As our student trustees, you will be able to help us shape the role and the way we work so that we harness your experience and wisdom as we drive forward.We’re looking forward to hearing from candidates who want to help us make our vision a reality.
We are keen to hear from individuals with personal experience of mental health difficulties and we particularly encourage applications from ethnic minorities, who are currently under-represented in Student Minds.
While previous experience is valued, we are keen to welcome and support enthusiastic individuals who may not have previous experience as a trustee or of working with Student Minds.
