Thank you to all who supported 25 Clare Hall members as they completed a 12,000 Steps a Day Challenge last month. The College is pleased to report that together we raised over £400 for the Mental Health Foundation.
It’s not too late to support the team and this vital cause: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/clarehallcamteam

About the Mental Health Foundation
‘We work towards good mental health for all; as everyone knows, prevention is better than cure. Everything we do is focused on protecting people’s mental health. Our work involves rigorous research and practical projects to identify what’s most helpful, public information that empowers people to look after their mental health and influencing work to move policies in the right direction. We know that some communities are at higher risk of mental health problems due to the social, economic, and environmental circumstances they find themselves in. Much of our work challenges these mental health inequalities by helping those at the greatest risk.’
Spotlight on student wellbeing
At Clare Hall there are a number of ways we help support our students’ wellbeing and mental health. The College Nurse, College-based Counselling Service and Student Assistance Programme add to the University’s Student Support services to help students to make the most of their time at Cambridge.
Clare Hall students can find details on wellbeing via the Intranet, and on the University’s Student Support pages.
