Social Introverts aims to create environments for friendships to form, we don’t want any UoB student to ever feel alone. We understand the potential negative impacts of being an introvert at university on mental health; this is something we really care about as a society.
What are we trying to achieve?
We want our members to make new friends and enjoy activities with likeminded students! As introverts ourselves we understand that making friends at university can be a challenge and it can be hard to socialise with others, with this impacting our mood and well-being. Raising awareness of mental health issues associated with loneliness is a key aim of us here at Social Introverts. We hope to additionally raise some money for several mental health charities to help fight the mental health issues many students may face.
How will we do this?
We will be running events and various social activities designed to help students that don’t know where to turn when looking for new friends, as an independent society and in coordination with other societies. Through these means we hope to expose our members to as many opportunities to meet and socialise with likeminded individuals.
