Student Mental Health
Share this page
Mental health provision is a general concern across all of higher education, often taking centre stage in political and higher education sector debates, both in the UK and beyond. The World Health Organisation has highlighted the lack of resources. Universities are under increased pressure from the government, media and public to enhance their performance in this area. So what can Universities do?
In this briefing note, we summarise the main debates in this area, highlight emerging trends of good practice (while including our own critical view), and illustrate some of the main problems within the topic. In the absence of a national framework, we will try to identify emerging trends, and to provide insights into the complex debates.
