AMOSSHE has joined a consortium of organisations appointed by the Office for Students to help universities and colleges identify and make use of effective practice in supporting student mental health. This work will lead to the creation of an online hub to share what works to support student mental health.
TASO (Centre for Transforming Access and Student Outcomes in Higher Education) is leading the project, and AMOSSHE is contributing expertise along with a range of organisations, including What Works Wellbeing, Universities UK, SMaRteN, and Student Minds.
John Blake, Director for Fair Access and Participation at the Office for Students, said:
“Students have experienced an especially difficult time through the pandemic. It is crucial that they continue to receive the right mental health support as universities and colleges return to normal.
“The Office for Students has provided a range of funding and resources to support student mental health, and this national programme will help us to better identify what works best. I am delighted that we have appointed this TASO-led consortium, with the organisations involved having significant expertise in understanding what works best to support students. Students will be consulted through this work, to ensure their views are taken into account.”
