Join Our Movement.
Our aim is to promote and protect the mental health and wellbeing of medical students in the UK. We are a wellbeing charity which empowers, equips and engages medical students to help them to proactively improve their health, wellbeing and self-care.
Medical students, doctors and partners please follow us across our socials to be part of the movement.
Our vision is that every medical student is empowered to be proactive, equipped and supported to manage their mental health and wellbeing, so they can achieve their full potential. We understand through experience that being a medical student is not easy. We are here to support, protect and promote the mental health and wellbeing of medical students, our future doctors, our future front line.
We want to be able to integrate mental health and wellbeing teaching into medical education in the future and work with other charities and governing bodies to be able create lasting, impactful change, as medical student mental health and wellbeing matters and is a priority too.

Promoting a positive culture and environment that prioritises mental health and wellbeing in medical students.
Share tools, workshops and campaigns to equip our community with the right resources they can rely on to help when, and if they experience difficulties with their mental health.
Tackle the shame and stigma associated with mental ill-health and struggles with wellbeing by sharing personal stories online, increasing awareness of mental health issues and effects on students and doctors
As part of the Mind Health campaign ongoing on our Instagram @mindhealthuk, medical students and practicing healthcare professionals have shared their personal stories related to wellbeing. We hope those speaking out are able to help others who are pursuing medicine so that they are able to find methods of incorporating wellbeing into their lifestyle. Hopefully, the solidarity of the community will inspire others to reach out and seek help when they need it, knowing they are not alone.
