The UK’s student mental health charity.
Student Minds works with students, service users, professionals and academics to develop new and innovative ways to improve the mental health of students.
Student Minds empower students and members of the university community to develop the knowledge, confidence and skills to look after their own mental health, support others, and create change, so that all in higher education can thrive.
Key to their approach is ensuring that young people have agency, whilst empowering the community around them to have the health literacy and tools to respond. Student Minds want to ensure students have access to timely, youth-friendly support and resources. They’re focused on prevention, ensuring that more young people learn how to build their own wellbeing toolkit. They train students and staff in universities across the UK to deliver student-led peer support programmes as well as research-driven campaigns and workshops. By working collaboratively across sectors, they share best practice and ensure that the student voice influences decisions about student mental health.
