Student Mental Health Scoping Highlights Report
Apr 01, 2022 | Oxford Academic Health Science Network
|The Student Mental Health Scoping Highlights Report was created by the Oxford Academic Health Science Network. The report summarizes findings from a qualitative study exploring strengths and gaps in current service delivery for post-secondary students within a localized area with multiple universities. Though there are effective services and programs in place, there are gaps including access barriers, lack of communication between care providers, and lack of clarity between the roles of healthcare organizations and the universities in the area. The report presents several recommendations to improve mental health supports for students in the region. Recommendations include mental health literacy training for faculty and staff, implementation of peer supports, increase non-medical supports, increase accessibility of services, and after hours and drop-in care.
