Lucy Bailey

Celebrating the University's 'Women of Achievement 2016': Lucy Bailey, student, School of Politics and International Studies.


Lucy was named Yorkshire Woman of Achievement in Education 2015 for her tireless campaign to improve the support available for Leeds students living with mental health problems.  She also established a peer-led mental health support group at the University of Leeds, through a grant from the Leeds for Life Foundation, which was the first of its kind in the UK.

“I worked with an incredible team of students, with the full support of staff from the University and LUU. This experience has taught me that if you want to see change, you don’t need to wait for others to make it happen.”
