Nicola Byrom, recipient of a Queen’s Young Leader Award for founding the mental health charity, Student Minds, has written a report on her remarkable week working alongside other winners of the award.

Miles for Mental Health was opened by the Chairman of the Oxfordshire County Council, with short talks from Hamish Elvidge, Chair of the Matthew Elvidge Trust, Seb Baird, Trustee of Student Minds, and Dr Alice Prochaska, Principal of Somerville College.
