Student welfare and support services at Sussex

The Students’ Union is deeply saddened by the recent death of one of our student members. We would like to offer our sincere condolences to his family and friends at this time.

We want to remind students to be supportive toward each other, and also to make use of the mental health and wellbeing services available on and off campus.

Please reach out if you need help - nobody should suffer alone.
