University is presented to young people as “the best years of your life”, and many students have a great time, as well as success in their studies - but for some it can be stressful, lonely and unhappy.
More students are coming forward with mental health conditions - 15,395 in 2015, almost five times the number in 2006/07 – and 94 per cent of higher education providers report an increase in demand for counselling. But less than a third of universities have an explicit mental health and wellbeing strategy.
