It's clear we're facing an incredible challenging time and a student mental health crisis. At Oxford SU we're committed to actively lobbying and working closely with the collegiate University to improve student mental health for all students.
Over two thirds (74%) of 18- 24 year olds say lockdown has made their mental health worse, compared with 60% of adults. Over 4 in 5 (82%) of young people had a lower than average wellbeing score (Mind, 2020).
According to the NUS:
We played a key role in securing the Unviersity Mental Health Taskforce and continue to work with staff across the collegaite University on this issue.
Groups we sit on:
In mid-late Hilary Term 2021 we hope to provide an update and briefing on the work of the Mental Health taskforce and our next steps.
