Student mental health matters
Since the pandemic, student mental health has been a priority across the UK with a whole host of support from charities. Now, more than ever before we are aware of how much mental health plays a part in our everyday lives, and students are no exception. The past few years have placed an exceptional amount of pressure on students to remove learning and isolation. So what support is out there and how can you find it?
Student Minds is the UK’s student mental health charity that aims to empower students to look after their own mental health. Whether you’re a student looking for support at university or support for a friend or loved one, Student minds can help. They are a charity that supports students, parents, and friends through student-led peer support interventions. They also deliver research-driven workshops and campaigns.

Student Wellbeing services
All universities in the UK have wellbeing services that are there to help, guide and support students through their learning journey. No one should have to suffer in silence which is why it’s so important to know what support can be reached at any time. Student support teams often include specialist advisers dedicated to helping students with mental health difficulties. This help is not limited to people with diagnosed conditions, it’s available to all students who would like support to cope with any aspect of life. You don’t have to wait until you arrive at university or college to contact the mental health adviser. In fact, it’s a good idea to contact them when you’ve been offered a place on the course. This is so they can ensure you’re fully supported and feel confident when you arrive.
