How they can help

Millennials breaking barriers

Canterbury Umbrella is proud to be working with students from Kent University to develop a breaking barriers group.

This is an opportunity to discuss issues important to students and reduce stigma. These sessions are open to all students, including those from Canterbury Christ Church and surrounding sixth forms.

Support groups

These include Rethink, bi-polar, epilepsy, Carers’ Matters and a mental health forum.
