Millennial’s Breaking Barriers
Canterbury Umbrella is proud to be working with students from Kent University to develop a breaking barriers group after hours. This is aimed at discussing issues important to students and diminishing stigma.
These sessions are open to all students, including those from Canterbury Christ Church and surrounding sixth forms. Sessions happen every 2 weeks on a Wednesday at 4pm – 5.30pm
If you are a student feeling homesick, want to get to know new people, experiencing mental health or just interested in discussion then please find us on facebook (Millennials Breaking Barriers) for details of the launch and other events to get involved with!
