Planning for a Sustainable Future: the importance of university mental health in uncertain times
The responses of universities to the Covid-19 pandemic have been nothing short of extraordinary. As universities start to plan the next phase, it is vital that the wellbeing of staff and students remains at the heart of all decision making.
Planning for a Sustainable Future outlines how universities can make mental health a university-wide priority in the context of Covid-19. Informed by the University Mental Health Charter and listening to staff and students, it provides principles universities can apply in making strategic decisions about next year and beyond.
Only by protecting our mental health will we shape a sustainable future in which everyone in higher education can thrive.
