» Ch..ch..ch...changes!

We are currently updating our web-pages to reflect the change to the University of South Wales. We would also like to make them more user-friendly.

Please help us! If you have any suggestions about how the Mental Wellbeing pages could be improved; things you think should be included; what would really appeal to students looking for advice or information on mental wellbeing issues then please help us by emailing your suggestions to: mws@southwales.ac.uk.

» Eating Disorders at University Survey

Eating Disorders at University: Gaps in treatment and the student experience.

Following a pilot Beat are conducting a survey about accessing treatment at university. If you’ve got a spare few minute please help with their research. It will be used to campaign for better support and access to treatment for students with eating disorders.

Students who study at a University away from their ‘home’ can often face particular difficulties in accessing continuous or ‘joined-up’ treatment across the year (or in some cases any treatment at all), as they spend part of the year at ‘home’ and part of the year at their University city or town. This applies to both students who develop an eating disorder whilst at University and those who may have had one (or be in recovery from one) before starting their course.

BEAT have heard from a number of students who have fallen through the ‘gaps’ between different treatment services/NHS local authorities. However some students report that their experience of accessing treatment during this time has been a positive one, and we are equally interested to hear from these students. In this campaign BEAT are also interested in the level of support offered by Universities as well as their efforts to prevent eating disorders.

» Students please complete this survey

ECU (Equality Challenge Unit) is conducting a UK-wide survey:

  • How can universities support staff and students experiencing mental health difficulties?

PLEASE COMPLETE THE SURVEY!

ECU is currently surveying the views of staff and students on how universities can support people experiencing mental health difficulties. In particular, they want to gain an understanding of how universities can:

  • develop an environment which encourages staff and students to let the university know they are experiencing mental health difficulties and receive targeted support
  • proactively ensure that their courses, the work environment, their facilities and services are accessible to students experiencing mental health difficulties.

Responses to the staff and student surveys will be invaluable in helping ECU develop materials to promote an inclusive environment supportive of mental health in universities.
