Canterbury Christ Church University and the Christ Church Students’ Union have made the mental health of students and staff a strategic priority.

Social media is a great communication tool but it also has its risks. We would like to remind students of the Canterbury Christ Church University Social Media Policy which is aimed at protecting students who use, or intend to use, social media.
