Students Cara, Jess, Kayleigh, Laura, Matt and Musa  from Adult, Child, Learning Disability and Mental Health Nursing  met with almost 400 young people and staff in 8 schools and colleges  across the Humber last week to raise aspirations alongside awareness of careers in health and social care.

Invited to tell their personal stories the students inspired and enlightened, receiving fantastic feedback and invitations to return.

Images from Mental Health Awareness week

Our HOLD colleague Tricia Boulton took some beautiful pictures of the group in and outside the library - see below:
