The #stepchange in student mental health begins with higher education leaders adopting mental health as a strategic imperative.
Mental health matters. It affects our relationships and our wellbeing. It determines how we learn, and our productivity. The way we understand and approach mental health may be our greatest challenge.
Universities should adopt mental health as a strategic priority, implementing a whole university approach, with students and staff involved at all stages of the journey.
