Good mental health is essential for students to manage the challenges that university life presents. This book offers pragmatic guidance to support academic and student services staff in engaging with this critical issue, both in terms of being proactive within their role to promote a positive approach to wellbeing, and understanding how to care appropriately for students who may not be flourishing in the university environment.

Key topics include:

* The pressure points and transitions of student life

* The crucial role of departmental and academic staff

* How to make mental health policies work

* The legal obligations and limits of student support
