Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund

Thank you very much for your wonderful contributions to LAMDA’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund. Together we have raised over £20,000.  But there is still a great need to support our students and every donation does make a difference.

I’m so grateful LAMDA has set up this fund.  I hope you can help and contribute. 
Thank you.

LAMDA alumna Harriet Walter on student wellbeing

A message from Danny Lee, Student Wellbeing Manager

Being a student can be a time of excitement, learning and personal growth. It can also be a time of anxiety, overwhelming emotions and unravelling as students move away from home for the first time, finding out more about who they are and where they place themselves in the world.  

There has been a growing mental health crisis in Higher Education, and we have seen marked increase in anxiety and isolation in our students, heightened by the uncertainties of our current society. Here at LAMDA we are committed to supporting the mental health of our students and providing holistic wellbeing support to each of them that need it. 

Throughout last year over 150 students reached out for wellbeing support and met with our student wellbeing officer. This ranged from reasons such as anxiety, to difficult living situations, to periods of depression, to relational challenges, to painful past experiences, to making sense of societal oppression they face, to ongoing mental health challenges, and many other reasons. Many of them accessed ongoing wellbeing check-ins, and we supported & funded 66 of them to access counselling with an external therapist. For the majority of them, this was the first time being offered a safe therapeutic space to process difficult parts of their life experiences and current situations. 

We ask for your support to help us continue providing this level of support to our amazing students. Thank you so much.
