The Campaign

This campaign is designed to help you get support during these incredibly difficult times. COVID-19 has had a massive impact on the way we are studying, living, our families and our futures. It is becoming more important for people to reach out and talk about these issues, to share how they are feeling and hopefully, gain some comfort by doing this.

That is why we have launched this campaign. We want to share with you who you can talk to, how you can get support while in quarantine. Whether it is loneliness, bereavement, academic stress or motivation. No matter how you identify, the colour of your skin, your mental health, we are all the same on the inside, and deserve support in these unprecedented times.  

Throughout the Nightline Anniversary Week and the remainder of quarantine we will be releasing tips to keep healthy, as well as where you can go for support.
