This conference will focus on priorities for supporting and improving student mental health in higher education, as well as latest thinking on the role of policy, best practice in multi-agency co-operation, and what action is needed to address the impact of the pandemic.
This will be an opportunity to discuss mental health among students in Higher Education following the publication of the COVID-19 mental health and wellbeing recovery action plan earlier this year, which identifies children and young people as a key priority for suicide prevention and mental health support. Delegates will assess its proposals and the extent to which further support may be needed.
Following the relaxing of COVID-19 restrictions, which have had a significant impact on the lives of students in Higher Education over the past year, and the return of students to university settings, this conference is well timed to consider how the pandemic has affected students’ mental health, and priorities for support and pastoral care going forward.
We are pleased to be able to include keynote contributions on core issues, including:
- policy priorities for supporting student mental health - Estelle Kane, Senior Officer, Access and Inclusion, Office for Students
- mental health and suicide prevention - Lord Lucas of Crudwell and Dingwell
- next steps for university mental health - Rosie Tressler, Chief Executive Officer, Student Minds
The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from the DfE; the Department for the Economy, NI; the DWP; the DHSC; and the Welsh Government.
