In 2017, WSMS aims to continue to provide a safe environment around our events, and to provide a support system via the Year Representatives and our Wellbeing Initiatives. Please feel free to request our Wellbeing Policy, which outlines our stance on this issue.
Any concerns about your wellbeing, academic standing or otherwise can be directed towards your Year Representatives, whose contact details can be found under the 'Members' website tab, under 'Academic Representation'.
