Mental health will be taking centre stage at Cambridge Regional College’s Huntingdon campus this month when the college holds a wellbeing fair.

Among the exhibitors backing the event are Mind, the National Citizen Service and Link to Change – the young people’s charity.

The focus of the fair, which takes place on 18 October, will be on offering advice on coping skills and techniques for students who might need help now or in the future – or who have a friend in need of advice.

The event celebrates Mental Health Day, which took place earlier this month, and is supported by the Kite Trust, counselling service Centre 33, the Terrence Higgins Trust, Dhiverse and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust.

Caroline Nicholls, counsellor at CRC’ Huntingdon Campus, said the event would ensure students knew where to go if they needed help, now or in the future.

“We offer lots of welfare assistance in college but it is very useful for students to know about the help and advice available to them outside the college as well,” she said.

“We’ve very grateful to the organisations who are backing our event and helping inform more young people about mental health and wellbeing.”
