Great question, thanks for asking it. My focus for the improvements focuses on three specific elements- exposure, accessibility and quality. Those are the three particular areas of the services that I would like to target, and I believe if these can be improved, the overall service quality will be significantly bettered too. If elected, I immediately would be looking to sit down as soon as possible with representatives from both the University and SUSU to communicate this vision and strategy, and see what changes can be made to improve support services for our students. I’m not an expert on this, so would be keen to work with them to see what would be feasible, and what would help our students the most. Importantly, I want services that help all our students equally- from undergraduates to postgraduates and beyond, we need to be there for everyone in our community, and that’s not happening right now. Ultimately, my goal would be to demonstrate to the University and SUSU how they can improve services in realistic and achievable ways, with this in turn leading to a discussion of what resources are available for this and how they could be used most effectively. There are no excuses for inaction, we have to tackle this mental health epidemic head on as best we can and my manifesto is designed to deliver this. Frankly, you just have to look at the current construction efforts on campus to see that the University is not short of money. They have the means to improve services, just not the will, and I'm the candidate who is determined to change that.
