Student Editorial Team

Our blog is run by Student Minds and led by a student editorial team who will work with you to come up with blogging ideas, edit posts and get your stories shared. 

Editor:


I’m Taylor, a second-year university student studying Primary Education. I am extremely passionate about promoting positive mental health practices and challenging the stigma around mental health. I would like to raise awareness of the challenges of students’ mental health and help to promote their stories and experiences.



Deputy Editor:


I'm Natalie, a student at the University of Leeds studying BA English and History. Having struggled with mental health difficulties, I advocate for mental health awareness and I am passionate about breaking the stigma surrounding mental health at university. I'm excited to work with the Student Minds Blog to help students share their stories and help others feel less alone.



Sub-Editors:


Hi, my name is Chen-Chun. I’m currently studying the International Foundation Program at King’s College London. I noticed how little students’ mental health was mentioned throughout my years in high school; and that was when I became interested in promoting the importance of mental health. I’m really excited to work with Student Minds and let people’s voices be heard!




Hey, I’m Rosanna. I live in Cardiff and I’m currently completing a Master’s Degree in Music. Having studied during the pandemic in a new city, I witnessed first-hand the struggles that today’s students may face. I strongly believe that mental health issues need to be talked about openly and that no one should feel ashamed or afraid to seek support.



I’m Emily and I’m studying for the MA/MSc Open degree with The Open University, whilst working as a Learning Support Assistant and EAL Teacher in a Secondary School. I also volunteer for Let’s Talk About Loss and Shout. I am a passionate advocate for mental health and bereavement also, especially in young people.



I'm
Luke and I’m studying MSc Sport and Exercise Psychology at Portsmouth University. I have struggled with anxiety and have lost my dad to suicide. I want to challenge stigmas particularly surrounding men’s mental health, and to help improve people’s education surrounding mental health and show that it is okay not to be okay.





I’m Martina and I’m a French and Spanish graduate from Uni of Southampton. Helping people through the isolation that mental health can bring is very important to me. I am excited to be a part of the editorial team, allowing students to open up and share their experiences through the blog, showing our readers and writers, you are not alone.





I’m Robin, and I’m a BA (Hons) English Language and English Literature graduate from the University of Brighton. I have been passionate about breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health conditions for many years and want to help spread the message that no one ever has to suffer alone.





I'm Caoimhe. I graduated in July 2021 with a degree in Photography with Video from Ulster University. I am currently on a gap year before returning to university in September 2022, to gain my MA in Journalism. While at uni, I was a mental health volunteer for Mind Your Mind - a mental health charity run by students for students. I am very passionate to continue my work in mental health.




I’m Riley from Hong Kong, just headed to London. I’m studying MA Film and Screen Media at Birkbeck University. Uni-life is not easy, especially under this pandemic. As a foreigner in London, I’m facing challenges everyday but I know I’m not the only one. I would love to hear all other students’ stories, who shared the same experiences as me.



I'm Sarah, a second-year Psychology and German student at the University of St Andrews. It can be challenging to take care of your mental health and well-being while at university, so I’m looking forward to empowering students to share their experiences, and promoting a welcoming and non-judgmental space for students.


I’m Preksha and I’m studying Psychological and Behavioural Sciences at the University of Cambridge. I am passionate about challenging mental health stigmas, and supporting the well-being of every young student. I am excited to help spread awareness about mental well-being, by encouraging students to share their empowering stories and by collaborating with the Student Minds platform.


I’m Lydia and I am a third year Psychology in Education student from the University of Bristol. I’m so excited about working as a sub-editor as I am passionate about spreading awareness about mental health and tackling the taboo surrounding it. Giving students an opportunity to talk about their own experiences is really important and I look forward to supporting this.


I'm Lauryn and I just graduated from the University of Manchester where I studied English Literature with Creative Writing. I am currently doing a Master's in Magazine Journalism at City, University of London, as my dream is to pursue a career in lifestyle and culture journalism. Throughout the pandemic I found that it was really hard to study remotely and that most students, including myself, felt unsupported and forgotten. I want to make a difference and ensure that all students feel happy and healthy while at university.



I'm Fionnuala, a Global Mental Health MSc student at KCL and LSHTM. I have experienced anxiety and depression at university. I found university challenging as I tried to balance taking care of my mental health and keeping up with academic work. I am passionate about increasing access to mental healthcare for students and creating an open dialogue about mental health at university to prevent isolation and feelings of shame.





I’m Shamira, I recently studied a degree in biomedical science. I’ve always been passionate about mental health awareness and the pandemic has made it all the more obvious how much more work needs to be done so it’s properly addressed. I hope I can do contribute to better awareness through my work with Student Minds!
