Student mental health

The student mental health policy provides a practical framework relating to student mental health issues for students, potential students and staff supporting students.

The University recognises the increasing prevalence of mental health difficulties within the higher education population and, through this student mental health policy (PDF) owned by the Equality Policy Unit, is developing its approach to supporting students with diverse needs. The policy also provides a basis for a consistent approach to the way these students' needs are responded to.

A practical guide to helping students with mental health difficulties is also available to download. This may be of use to all those in student-facing roles.
