ABOUT MENTAL MAGAZINE

Mental Magazine is a UK based; student’s mental health magazine aimed at students from sixth form to university (including mature) students.

Founded by Journalism and Photojournalism graduates from London Metropolitan University in late 2019 by five journalism and photojournalism students in their final year of study at London Metropolitan University as part of an assessment, the passion we felt behind it led us to making it a real business and product.

Mental looks to give an honest take on students’ mental health. Studying can be a daunting prospect alone, but with

the added potential added stress and worries students can encounter, it’s easy to throw in the towel. So that’s where we want to come in and help!

Providing students with a platform to seek advice and content they can relate to, ensuring their voice will not go unheard.

OUR MISSION

Our mission as a magazine is to support, educate, and encourage people struggling with mental health along with people who maybe don’t properly understand their own mental health issues.

OUR AIMS

2. To support, educate and encourage readers struggling with mental health being. 

3. Educate readers who maybe don’t properly understand their own mental health issues and of those around them.
