The project team chaired a symposium on student mental health. This symposium aimed to bring to light some of the mental health challenges faced by individuals both in the lead up to, and during, their time at university. The studies in this symposium used a variety of methodological approaches and drew on samples from multiple countries to offer a thorough exploration of the issues that some students experience.
Presentation 1: Student mental health: the view from history
In the first presentation, Dr Sarah Crook established the importance of focusing on student mental health by providing a historical perspective of the issue. This backdrop helped to inform our current understandings of the topic.
Presentation 2: Academic Pressures and Mental Distress During Adolescence: Associations with Participation in Higher Education
In the second presentation, the StudentWellLives project team explored whether mental health problems during adolescence impact on the likelihood of young people attending university, as well as the type of university they go to.
Presentation 3: Mental health challenges associated with adaptation and acculturation among international students studying in Scotland
In the third presentation, Dr Nicola Cogan and colleagues investigated some of the mental health challenges experienced by international students as they adapt to studying in a new country.
Presentation 4: University student mental health over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic: Findings from the U-Flourish study
Finally, Professor Anne Duffy and colleagues brought us up-to-date on the matter by looking at students’ mental health outcomes over the course of the pandemic.
