About us

Mentality is Royal Holloway’s first mental health-focused student group established in February 2020. Our aim is to challenge the stigmas of mental health, especially for students, which discourage people from seeking help and talking openly about their mental health.

We organise events and campaigns run locally, virtually and on campus for students that promote healthy self-image, positive mental health, and suicide awareness through both the University and the Students' Union and across the local community.

Our long-term aim is to create a permanent mental health base at the Royal Holloway Student Union to address the growing crisis and support the student body over future years, where students can access information and support for their own mental health. 

Membership

Our membership button is now live on this page and it's absolutely free - no hidden payments, not now or ever! It was always our intention when we established Mentality to provide a free platform for people who cared about mental health and everything we’re working to do to come together and support us. There's no restriction to our events and campaigns for those without membership, but it is required for constitutional meetings as well as for running for committee positions!

If you'd like to raise money for us, please get in contact with any of the committee and we'll look at ways in which you can help us and our cause.

Events and Activities

Emerging this year in a post-Covid world, we're exploring the various different ways in which we can safely deliver our campaigns and events to you, our members, whilst also ensuring that we meet the latest Government and University guidelines and rules regarding social distancing, meetings, capacity restrictions and any other relevant restrictions. 

Last year, we never really had the opportunity to 'launch' the society as our ratification came only weeks before the announcement of the first lockdown. So this year, we're coming back with even more passion this year as we prepare to launch more campaigns and activities that promote positive mental health and raise awareness of suicide and other mental health conditions. We'll be working with the University's Student Wellbeing Team, the Students' Union, the Vice President of Wellbeing and Diversity, and other individuals and organisations to ensure that the mental health conversation remains relevant and that meaningful change can take place.
