dc.description.abstractHigher Education (HE) Students are increasing diverse, with larger numbers participating from none traditional backgrounds. Factors such as: finance, employment commitments, family and carer responsibilities, academic pressures and coping with student life, all impact on a student’s mental health. Higher Education Institutions (HEI) offer support services to students, for both moral and legislative reasons. This article explores from the academic literature, the factors that students face, and how HEI support students with mental health issues. The analysis uses a UK university to investigate how support is incorporated in practice. It further recommends a research project should be undertaken, into level 4 students, and their perceptions of MHI in students, and support services provided by HEI. From the finding of this research more effective ways of engagement with students can be considered.
