This compilation of mental health promotion initiatives was prepared by the Universities UK/GuildHE Committee for the Promotion of Mental Well-being in Higher Education. It aims to be a guide for senior managers in Higher Education in developing policies, procedures and activities promoting mental health.
In October 2013, UMHAN produced guidance for Disabled Students Allowances needs assessors to underpin Assessment Centres' existing methodologies in relation to assessing the needs of students with mental health difficulties. This resource aims to highlight the dynamic, individual, context-specific nature of mental health difficulties, identify key principles when undertaking assessments, and assist in decision-making about different forms of support.
In 2010, UMHAN prepared a guidance document for the sector, detailing the practical foundations for developing institutional support for students with mental health difficulties. The guidance - targeted at existing services and those wishing to develop such a service - can be downloaded as a PDF document. A 2017 update to this document, detailing supervision recommendations, may be downloaded.
