The KCLSU has created a new committee for wellbeing in accordance with the launch of Student Minds’ University Mental Health Charter. The Wellbeing Union Development Committee (UDC), following on from a forum created last year, has been created with a focus on improving overall wellbeing in the KCL Community.
The UDC is student-led and members of the Wellbeing UDC are representing several student initiatives and societies at KCL. These include Positive Peers, ThinkMental, Student Wellbeing Leaders, Sports teams, ASEAN and post-graduate representatives.
Members of the UDC are also collaborating with the student union and members of the KCL Faculty on a variety of workstreams to work on the newly created University Mental Health Charter. These streams identify elements of the University Mental Health Charter which include Work, Support, Learn and Live; representing areas such as learning support, accommodation and staff. It is hoped that the creation of this development committee will be a great step forward for improving overall welfare at King’s.
Roar spoke to Sophie Churchill, the Chair of the Wellbeing UDC, who said: “I’m really excited to be working with such an amazing and talented group of people to hopefully implement positive change to student wellbeing throughout the year.”
