#LetsBeHonest

This year, your Officer Team will be carrying on work on the previous priority campaign for mental health, Let's Be Honest, a campaign designed to raise awareness of mental health issues and how to access the wide range of support that is available at Anglia Ruskin. Our vision is for Anglia Ruskin University to be a community that cares for each other. To find out more click here.
