Overview:Mental wellbeing is of great importance to every student’s academic outcome and experience of university life. Indications are that the numbers of students suffering from mental health problems are increasing therefore the sector must consider how best it can meet these challenges in an ever changing policy landscape

Working in partnership, internally and externally, increasingly seems the way forward for universities seeking to support students’ mental wellbeing in a time of increasing need yet with resources that stand still at best. Students need and deserve support: how can we make this work, and can we look beyond ourselves into a more coordinated and outward looking structure and strategy for student support?

This one day conference, organised in partnership between Universities UK and the Mental Wellbeing in Higher Education Working Group (MWBHE) will inspire delegates to review and refine current strategy with a specific focus on partnerships building  to support students within their institution with mental health difficulties.

This event is relevant to anyone with strategic responsibility for student wellbeing, and working on developing policy or implementing best practice in the support of students with mental health difficulties.
