UMHAN encourages you to think about your rights, resources and broad support networks, and these webpages will help inform you about these.
If you're a student with a mental health condition, you know someone who is, or you want to raise awareness, you may find these pages useful.
- Do you know who to talk to about issues relating to your mental health and study?
- Are you aware of your entitlements as a student with a mental health condition?
- Have you looked at the self help resources that are available?
Our resource page on "Mental Health in the Context of Disability" is a good place to start.
The page below from Disability Rights UK has some more information about the Equality Act 2010 and mental health conditions and what this means for students.
Disability Rights UK have also produced a website called Right to Participate which can also help you to think about your rights, in education and elsewhere. They have a helpline especially for Disabled students.
