‘You’ve lost the plot’: Nigel Farage shoots down ‘cry closet’ for anxious uni students
Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has accused America’s higher education of “losing the plot” after one of its universities set up a “cry closet” for students to lock themselves in when feeling anxious.

The closet – which has gone viral on social media – was introduced by the University of Utah after being designed by student artist Nemo Miller. It is supposed to be a safe place for students to “take a break” when they are feeling overwhelmed during the exam session.

A sign pinned to the door of the closet reads: “A safe place for stressed out students otherwise known as the Cry Closet. This space is meant to provide a place for students studying for finals to take a short 10-minute break.”

It also stated that only one person is allowed in at a time, and that people must knock before making their way into the narrow stand-up cubicle.

Farage blasted the white closet, which also contains teddy bears inside for students to hug, tweeting:

His comments were echoed by many people who thought the idea was “pathetic.”  Other students, however, appreciated the mental health initiative.
