Report to HEFCE:
Understanding Provision for Students with Mental Health Problems and Intensive Support Needs
In 2014 the Higher Education Founding Council for England (HEFCE) commissioned a report to update the Council’s understanding of institutional support provision for students with mental health problems and other impairments with high cost or intensive support needs. In July 2015, The Institute for Employment Studies and Researching Equity Access and Participation (REAP) published an extensive report, based on a literature review and case studies completed at 12 Higher Education Institutions and Further Education Colleges across England.
We have complied a summary of the report to provide a concise overview for students and other interested stakeholders.
We would also be interested in hearing your views on the findings of this report, as we want to better understand the direction that various stakeholders in the sector believe support for students should be heading. We’ve launched a consultation and invite any students, staff, health professionals or other concerned parties to share their views.
