The mental health of both students and staff in higher (HE) and further (FE) education is a serious concern.
The government and the sector have rightly made tackling poor student mental health a priority.
The government has set up a student mental health taskforce, Universities UK has developed a framework on mental health, and StudentMinds has developed a government-backed University Mental Health Charter.
The British Psychological Society has endorsed the Charter and these other initiatives and applauds the work of our partners.
This Call to Action sets out our analysis of recommended next steps to maintain momentum on this crucial issue.
