Addressing the Concerning State of Student Mental Health: Tailored Support for Schools and Universities
Recent findings from the Office for National Statistics have shed light on the concerning state of student mental health. Nearly four in 10 students have reported experiencing mild or moderate depression, while 27% have exhibited signs of a potential eating disorder. A survey conducted among university applicants revealed that almost a quarter of them have faced eating-related issues or eating disorders in the past year, indicating a 30% increase compared to figures recorded four years ago.
In recognition of the escalating mental health challenges faced by students, we collaborate closely with both schools and universities, offering a range of services and therapies tailored to the educational sector. Our experienced team specializes in developing personalized assessment and treatment plans to address the unique mental health needs of students.
