Student-led Improvement Tool

Since launching the University Mental Health Charter, we have been promoting the importance of adopting a whole university approach to mental health and wellbeing. However, we know that students don’t always have the tools and resources they need to work with their universities to create positive change.

We have been working with a panel of students to explore how we can empower students to work in partnership with their universities and ensure student voice is central to a whole-university approach.

The Student-led Improvement Tool is a co-produced guide for students wanting to improve their university’s approach to mental health and wellbeing, based on the principles of good practice outlined in the Charter. It can be used to allow students to:

Reflect on how their university supports mental health
Look at what their university does well and what needs more work
Make recommendations for improvement

We hope that this tool empowers more students to get involved and create lasting positive change for student mental health. Download and explore the tool to help you get started!
