Students with mental health difficulties are not a new phenomenon. Exam stress, transition from school to college or university and changes in lifestyle habits, such as, diet and alcohol consumption can all have a negative effect on mental wellbeing.
The aims of the website include: provide an online resource that can be updated for staff supporting student mental health and wellbeing; highlight an overall institutional approach to student mental health and wellbeing; highlight good practice in mental health improvement initiatives through case studies; advise staff in institutions of their responsibilities in relation to relevant legislation and policy; be a central point where links to national initiatives and other resources can be found.
