Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our Mental Health Q&A Day yesterday! 

Over 1,000 of you logged on to ask, answer and discover questions on welfare-based topics, including dealing with anxiety, how to tell if a friend or family member has depression and how best to support them, misgendering and coping strategies for severe homesickness.

We were so grateful to have the support of Dr Nicola Byrom of the charity Student Minds and of the LGBT charity PACE

The support on Twitter and Facebook was also overwhelming; our hashtag #TYAmentalhealth had a reach of 50,000 and many of you expressed your gratitude for the opportunity to speak out.
