The Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) is the equality policy and advice body for universities in England, and has recently launched an anonymous HE sector survey to examine mental health in the workplace.
The survey is aimed at understanding how universities can:
- develop an environment that encourages staff to inform the university about mental health difficulties to receive targeted support;
- ensure that the courses, work environment, facilities, and services are accessible to students experiencing mental health difficulties.
Responses to the survey will be invaluable in helping the ECU develop materials to promote an inclusive university environment that is supportive of mental health.
Please let the ECU know your views by completing the survey here – the survey is open until 12 April.
