Lancaster University has launched a new website dedicated to supporting students with mental health difficulties as part of a HEFCE funded project.

The project aims to disseminate good practice in the field of student mental health through staff training, network development and the production of this new web-based planning, guidance and training manual.

Lancaster University's head of student support Sylvia Brennan said: "Research has pointed to a rise in reported incidence of student mental health difficulties within the higher education sector.

"This new website is to assist those working in HEI's in the development of policy and practice around all major aspects of student mental health. The content is relevant to a wide cross section of HEI staff as well as students."
