Event: Student Mental Health: Responding to the Crisis

Title Student Mental Health: Responding to the Crisis

COVID-19 has intensified dislocation amongst campus communities, propelled healthcare students onto the front line of a global pandemic and upended traditional teaching models; but it will pass - and when it does, pre-existing issues will resurface compounded. This conference will break-down the cultures, economic factors, social and institutional pressures that contributed to dramatic rises in disclosures of mental health issues and student suicides at universities in the UK - providing delegates with the knowledge and tools to ensure that students return to campuses better equipped to support them after the pandemic. 

Delegates will explore why more students are turning to unconventional incomes like gambling and sex work during their studies, how the university experience can compound cultural and environmental conditions that lead students to access and supply drugs; as well as discussing how cross-institutional co-operation as well as legislative reviews of attitudes towards information sharing could prevent students reaching a point of crisis.
