Colleges and universities
Being a student can be an important period in life, involving new experiences, challenges and pressures.
This can mean that some students are vulnerable to depression, anxiety and other mental health issues; it’s also a time when effective support and early intervention can make a significant difference to people’s lives and futures.
We work with colleges, universities and student-led organisations to promote mental wellbeing through a whole institution approach, training, resources and e-learning. Our website 'Students Against Depression' is full of clinically based self-help information and activities for students experiencing common mental health problems.
Our free e-learning package consists of 6 modules to help non-specialist staff in universities feel more confident to spot and respond to signs of distress amongst students. We have also provided grant funding to student-led organisations for many years, and currently we support projects by Nightline and Student Minds.
Our college and universities advisory board
The College and University Advisory board provides strategic direction for our work as well as clinical and peer review, advice on the development of new resources, promotion and dissemination through professional and other networks and identifying opportunities for collaborative work in the sector.
