Our impact in colleges and universities

White curve

We give institutions the tools to embed a sustainable culture of wellbeing. Our whole institution partnership approach was extended significantly in 2019, meaning that more students and staff across the UK have the training, policies and resources they need to address mental wellbeing. We are currently working with a 24 further education colleges and 18 universities.

You have been exceptional in working with us to make training relevant and bespoke.
Postgraduate research students face particular pressures so we were keen to develop this new initiative with Charlie Waller to support and promote student wellbeing. The fact that we now have a wealth of training resources on mental health and wellbeing means we can carry on providing this training without incurring additional costs.

We also delivered 53 talks and training sessions in 2019, at universities where we do not currently have a partnership in place, reaching a further 1,711 participants.

  • ‘Keeping Mental Health in Mind’, our e-learning package for non-specialist staff in universities, reached over 12,000 individual users in 2019.
  • Our website Students Against Depression received an average of 26,865 page views per month in 2019.
