Universities UK is working with NHS leaders to improve mental health support for students.
As students become adults, they also take on the challenges of higher education, independent living and making new friends. At the same time, they move between their homes and university, meaning they may slip through the gaps in the health system when they are most vulnerable.
Mental health support for students needs to understand these transitions and join up care around their needs.
Minding our future contains new guidance to improve the coordination of care between the NHS and universities, so that all students can access the care they need.
