Mental Health in Universities: your thoughtsWatch
It's an area that a lot of unis are starting to pay more attention to in relation to student experience, and the Office for Students in particular are working improving provision across the sector (and providing funding too).
What do you think need the most attention regarding university mental health?
Would you like to see more peer-to-peer support? Do you think issues need tackling at grass-roots level on things like loneliness or would you prefer to see funding spent to widen services for more acute mental health treatment at universities?
The focus of this year's world mental health day is about suicide prevention. Are you familiar with any efforts at your university on suicide prevention and promoting mental health awareness?
What would you like to see your university in particular do more?
