Ben Coumbe

Churchill alumnus and UCL medical student

During his first year at University the challenges and strains of his new life sent Ben spinning into acute depression which made him increasingly isolated from his friendship group. Sport was his saviour, and he is now active in promoting the benefits of sport and exercise amongst the large student population in Cambridge as a means of managing stress and maintaining strong mental health. He is a passionate believer in the need to de-stigmatise mental health issues, particularly within academic environments.
