ECU Update on Mental Health Support in HE

Last month ECU ran online surveys asking what HEIs can do to support staff and students experiencing mental health difficulties.

They received an overwhelming response, with 3500 staff and students completing the survey and say, “thank you to everyone who responded, and everyone who supported us by circulating and disseminating the survey.

We are currently analysing the results and will be conducting follow-up interviews with a selection of respondents in the coming months. We will also be conducting interviews with national and sector bodies interested in this work.

We will share the interim results in the summer, with a full report and supporting materials to follow.”
