Mental Health Awareness Week – never be afraid to talk

This week marks Mental Health Awareness Week (14th – 20th May). The focus this year is understanding stress, and the impacts that it can have on the lives of those dealing with it. Stress can induce insomnia, loss of appetite, lack of concentration, and lead to many other damaging side effects that will almost definitely be a detriment to the potential of all students during this already hectic exam period.

Celebrating Women in Science

In our ever-changing world, women’s role in society continues to remain in a progressive state. It has been a battle for decades, but as this year marks the 100th anniversary of the Suffragette success, and so coinciding with International Women’s Day (8th of March), it is obviously as perfect as any other time to take a look back at just two of many successful women throughout a specific area in history. As an annual event, International Women’s Day celebrates women and all they are. With an emphasis for 2018 on the hashtag ‘#PressforProgress’, the IWD continues to focus on...
