Talk It Out is an active SLS that focuses around combating loneliness, having open and empathic conversations and facilitating events to help to break down the barriers we have between each other. Students who ‘talk it out’ can lessen their loneliness, vent their frustration, and even receive encouragement to help them find their way forward.
Talk It Out aims to make students aware of the professional services available to them at University and the Student Union. The need for the ‘Talk it Out’ listening service is drawn by feedback gathered by the Student Advice department of the Students’ Union. Despite there being 32,000 students at Cardiff University, many students have noted feeling lonely at some time University – particularly in the first year.
Our members are also given the opportunity to attend training for active listening as well as other free opportunities that would enhance their ability to develop the SLS further.
