We recognise that mental health can be difficult to talk about at the best of times, and even more so for men. As part of her work on Male Mental Health, Vice President Ffion will be hosting a second Forum specifically for male students (including trans and/or non-binary students who identify as male some or all of the time). This event is planned and delivered with support from the President and Vice President of the Athletic Union (AU).
