Mental health and wellbeing

We provide resources and information to support college delivery of mental health strategies and services, current research and thought leadership on emerging policy and practice, and opportunities to connect as a sector to share and learn from our collective experience.

The mental health and wellbeing of our college communities is a priority across the sector. It is also a strategic aim for AoC to facilitate and deliver opportunities to promote and protect mental health and wellbeing, as part of our work to improve student experience.

Working with colleges directly through our Mental Health Reference Group and Regional Communities of Practice for senior mental health leads ensures our mental health strategy is member-led. We have a strong working relationship with the Department of Education and a wide range of sector stakeholders, placing collaboration and partnership at the heart of our work.

To keep up to date with the latest projects and events, sign up for the weekly mental health briefing on the AoC website.
