Mental Health Working Party

LSEC and Students

The college are redeveloping a mental health working group for staff and students, to carry out tasks in making The Cornwall College Group more effective when supporting mental wellbeing. It will be a college wide approach to improving mental health outcomes for our college.

We would really like some of our amazing students to input into the meetings. You would help to shape how we recognise and move forward with mental wellbeing in college. We all want to have a positive impact in new ways to support everyone, the student voice is really important to enable us to make any new plans really effective.

Government Emergency Alarm - Test

The Government will be testing a national emergency alarm on Sunday 23rd April at 3pm. This will sound on your mobile phone even if you have it turned to silent.

This is a test, however, it may be used in a national emergency. More details can be found here:

If you are a survivor of domestic abuse and/or carry a hidden phone for another reason, this is how you can turn off your alert on your hidden phone: Refuge has put together a video to show you how to disable the emergency alerts, with versions for both Apple and Android devices. You can watch the video here:



While it's too late to register for the May elections now (previous information has been shared), students can still get a free ID from citizen card through NUS so please share the flyer below.

The Cove has had a revamp. This shows the dedication of some of our students that gave up their own time in the Easter Holidays to come in and paint the SU at Falmouth. Many thanks to Summer- Vice Chair of the LSEC, Winton (nominee for all positions on the CCSU) and Winton's French Exchange student Naomi who have done an amazing job at bringing in some colour to what was a bland coloured room. Also a MASSIVE thanks to Leanne (Estates - St Austell) who donated the paint to us from St Austell's Paint Store and made this possible for us to achieve. The introduction of the colours also brings us in line with some of the other unions across the Corporation who have used similar colours, so we have some consistency amongst the spaces, yet with our own site personal touches. Many thanks to everyone that made this possible and the students for giving up their own time.


Well done to our Falmouth Marine School students 🀩🀩🀩 fantastic, many congratulations.

Well done to 2nd year Marine Biology students Sara, Malaika, and Tristan from for completing their Open Water course today.

They all adapted amazingly to becoming scuba divers and made my job easy. These guys now have a lifelong scubadiving qualification that they can take anywhere in the world. Congratulations!

As the summer months approach, we have lots going on, including PADI courses, guided dives, night dives, snorkelling, Paddleboard hire and much more.

Also, don't forget about our student guided dive special price, Β£95 for two dives. This includes full kit hire and air fills.

Pop into the hut on the beach if you would like to have a chat about anything, especially scubadiving.

Princess Pavillions, Falmouth - EVERY BRILLIANT THING

As part of our Mental Health and Su***de Prevention work, we are putting on an event featuring the Every Brilliant Thing play at the Princess Pavilion in Falmouth on 25th April. Tickets are free, but will need to be booked on our Eventbrite page, which is available here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/every-brilliant-thing-tickets-596677166467

Content warning: The story contains possible triggering and sensitive material. Mental health issues like depression and coping with the su***de of a loved one are part of the narrative.
The play will be followed by light refreshments and a Q&A session with the actor, Philip Robinson. We are hoping to have local mental health and bereavement services in attendance to ensure everyone’s safety, and show what support is available in Cornwall. There will also be a chance to find out how you can get involved in mental health awareness and su***de prevention as we are planning to have a member of the Healthy Cornwall team there to promote the local training opportunities.
