Support our mission

Interested in supporting the work of Student Minds, including the maintenance and development of Student Space? There’s lots of ways you can do this, including:

Fundraising

Organise an event or challenge fundraising for Student Minds.
We've come up with some ideas to get you started with fundraising for Student Minds.

Talk to other students about Student Space

Sometimes the best method for raising awareness is through word of mouth. If you’re a student and feel comfortable doing so, tell your friends about the website or post about Student Space to your social media so other students can benefit from our support and advice.

Encourage your students’ union and/or university to use and support Student Space

We want to encourage all students’ unions and universities to signpost to Student Space from their support webpages. Does your students’ union or university not do this? Send them an email and encourage them to do so. Below is an email copy you’re welcome to use.

There’s also lots of exciting ways for students’ unions and universities to financially support Student Minds and Student Space

Email template to send to your institution

Dear [University / Students' Union Name],

I hope this email finds you well. My name is [Your Name], and I am a [Subject of Study] student at [Your Institution]. I am reaching out to you today to discuss the importance of reliable mental health resources for our student body.

As we all know, navigating the uncertainty of university life can be overwhelming, and it's essential for students to have access to proper support and advice. One invaluable resource that I believe should be readily available to all students is Student Space (https://studentspace.org.uk/).

Student Space is run by Student Minds, the UK’s student mental health charity and is funded by the Office for Students and Higher Education Funding Council for Wales. The support provided by Student Space is safe, confidential, free and is available to all higher education students across the UK. It has been developed collaboratively with services, higher education professionals, researchers and students to complement the existing services available to students.

Given the significance of mental health in the student community, I believe it would be beneficial to incorporate a direct link to Student Space on the [University/ Students' Union] website, particularly within the student support section. By doing so, we can ensure that every student knows where to turn for help when they need it most. Not only would this demonstrate our commitment to promoting student welfare, but it would also empower students to take proactive steps in managing their mental health. Additionally, having easy access to such resources can contribute to a more supportive and inclusive campus environment.

I understand that you may have your own procedures and criteria for adding external resources to your website. However, I would like to kindly request that you consider the importance of this initiative and explore the possibility of signposting to Student Space on your student support webpage.

Should you require any further information about Student Space or assistance in facilitating this request, you can contact the team directly at studentspace@studentminds.org.uk.

Thank you for considering my proposal, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
