The day started off with a flash mob, bringing energy and joy that lasted throughout the day. We spoke to people who've lived in Whitstable all their lives, to people who recently moved from China to study at the University.

During the day we asked students what they thought of mental health services and if they have used them in Kent. Here are a few of the replies we got.
The event was a hit
Even thought the stories we heard were mostly negative, so many of the people we spoke to really appreciated the University’s event. People felt comfortable sharing their own experiences of anxiety, depression and suicide and said they didn’t realise how much support was out there for them.
