During the upcoming period, UMHAN will be celebrating it’s 20th year.
As well as reflection, there will be opportunities to consider how we continue to develop to meet new demands for both ourselves as a charity, our members, and students with Mental Health Conditions.
Student Mental Health continues to be a key focus for many organisations in the sector, including universities, colleges, schools and students themselves.
Formal disclosure of Mental Health Conditions by students continues to increase year on year, however within many education providers staffing has not increased proportionately. This is at a time of increased scrutiny and focus on value for money and providing an evidence base for “what works”.
Additionally, the sector faces many challenges over the coming years: responding to the pandemic, Brexit, Disabled Students’ Allowances reform and more.
During the next few years our priorities will be adapted to respond to the current landscape and will also be updated on a yearly basis and in response to feedback from our members and other stakeholders.
