We are Epigram and Burst Radio the University of Bristol's independent student newspaper and radio station.

It’s no secret that many Bristol students this year have felt like they’ve been struggling to get the mental health support they need. Epigram and Burst Radio are saying enough is enough: it’s time to stand together to show fellow students who might be going through tough times that we will not stop until they get the help that they deserve.
As student media, Epigram and Burst Radio have a responsibility not just to cover the issues students are talking about, but to also bring to light the issues that we don’t believe are being talked about enough. This is why Epigram became the first student newspaper in the country to introduce a section that is entirely dedicated to mental wellbeing.

The student counselling service at our university do a fantastic job but they are understaffed and overworked. So we think it’s time to take our mental health care into our own hands. Join us, donate, and spread the word.

Event details


The aim of our campaign is to not just raise awareness of mental health problems, but to give students practical advice on how to have their first conversation with someone about how they are feeling. Over the two weeks of the campaign, we will be publishing #14Conversations about the best ways to talk to our closest friends and family or health care professionals about our mental wellbeing.
We will also be using this page to try to raise money for a local, free counselling service: Off The Record. OTR provide counselling, support groups and information of local people aged 16-25 who may be struggling with mental health problems. They are doing a great job but they can’t do it without financial support.
£10 donation buys an emergency session for a young person in crisis.
£50 donation buys six sessions of counselling for a young person struggling with self harm.
£100 donation buys three stress management workshops for 30 people.
