EQUALITY CHALLENGE UNIT SURVEY- Supporting Mental Health in Universities

ECU survey: How can universities support staff and students experiencing mental health difficulties?

ECU is currently surveying the views of staff and students on how universities can support people experiencing mental health difficulties. In particular, we want to gain an understanding of how universities can:

  • develop an environment which encourages staff and students to let the university know they are experiencing mental health difficulties and receive targeted      support
  • proactively ensure that their courses, the work environment, their facilities and services are accessible to students experiencing mental health difficulties

Responses to the staff and student surveys will be invaluable in helping us develop materials to promote an inclusive environment supportive of mental health in universities

Staff survey: How can universities support staff experiencing mental health difficulties?

Student survey: How can universities support students experiencing mental health difficulties?

Please support this work by completing the survey and also encouraging any staff and student networks and/or individuals to do so.

The survey will be open until Friday 12 April

For further details of the project, please see the ECU project page.
