College-goers are getting 24/ 7 mental health supports.
The Higher Education Minister Simon Harris is providing funding for the Together all initiative, to mark World Mental Health Day today.
He says students went through an incredibly difficult two years during the pandemic and this 24/ 7 help will have a positive impact on their lives.
Minister Harris says the support will be available online:
"It will basically provide all students with access to what's called 'together all' and it's a social enterprise that's been used in over 300 colleges all over the world"
"It' a peer-to-peer online support site where anybody who's experiencing a mental health challenge, you can talk there anonymously."
