What you hope to contribute to the mental health graduate circle? As I am in my third year I can hopefully support those who are starting out to prepare for confirmation, negotiate working with supervisors and seeking alternative supports throughout the uni/ department.
What you hope to learn from mental health hub members? life after PhD options, funding/ grants mainly!
