There are currently around 2.4 million students at UK universities, with one in three suffering from clinical levels of psychological distress during these formative years.
Since 2009, Student Minds have been leading the change in student mental health across the UK and offer a whole host of ways to help Higher Education organisations support students and the wider workforce.
Whether your students are looking for support for their own mental health at university, to find support for a friend or a loved one, or for a service that might be readily available to students, help is available.
Tribal Group are committed to working with universities and other organisations like Student Mind to develop technology which helps students to access the support they need quickly and easily, whenever and wherever they need it.
