Student wellbeing: cause for concern
By prioritising the student experience, institutions can attract and retain a diverse student population, bolster academic success, and improve long-term financial prospects. Yet, the education sector faces considerable challenges in addressing student wellbeing.
Data from NHS Digital paints a troubling picture: 1 in 4 young people aged 17 to 19 now likely have a mental health disorder. Additionally, a recent study found that 63% of students face overwhelming anxiety, with 41% experiencing depression to the point of impaired functioning.
Our guide is titled “Empowering Student Wellbeing and Retention,” It equips educational institutions with essential insights and tools to foster a positive and supportive environment for students throughout their academic journey, from enrolment to graduation.
