Insight brief

Mental health: Are all students being properly supported?

More students than ever are reporting mental health conditions. This brief asks what approaches are being taken across the higher education sector to support them, and what more can be done. Using data available for the first time from the OfS’s access and participation dataset, it explores the outcomes and needs of students with declared mental health conditions. We consider whether universities and colleges are doing enough for students with different identities who have such conditions.
