How Cambridge University almost killed me

7 October, 2014

The Guardian has recently highlighted the risks of University life. It reveals how mental health problems are on the rise at the UK's top universities and describes that, for Morwennna Jones, getting into Cambridge University was a dream come true…. but stress took its toll after she fell ill.
This is why we support Student Minds, which was formed by Nicola Byrom in 2009 and provides mental health campaigning and support for students to ensure that they receive the very best support at the earliest opportunity.

Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team saves lives!

20 September, 2014

We wanted to share two messages received by the Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team recently, which require no explanation, but do explain why we support this wonderful organisation.

"Two years ago today,I found myself in a moment of despair, seeing no way out and no end to the pain and suffering I was going through. I found myself at Beachy Head for only one reason. Without the intervention of your dedicated, caring, loving selves, I would not be here today. You guys are truly amazing people with all the hard work you do trying to help people in moments of despair…..don't get me wrong, it's a struggle day by day….but without you guys I would not be here today. With those thoughts I am truly grateful for the time and effort you spent on me……Much love xxxxxx"

" One of your amazing team found my daughter's fiance on the xxth of Jan this year. His name is xxxxx. He is such a wonderful lad, sensitive, caring, inteligent, so loving and generous. I know you will understand how much good you do and I could never say how much it means to us all that you found him in time. My daughter was so distraught when xxxxx went missing and we are all delighted to have them back together and he is now getting the help he needs. Thank you is so inadequate for the brilliant job your team does. xxxx"
