Event description

Description

Mental health issues are on the rise across UK higher education and recent reports state that one in four students are affected by a mental health condition.

The majority of technical staff are in student-facing roles and, whilst their technical expertise and practical support is an essential part of the teaching and learning experience, the ‘front-line’ nature of their roles means that they are also providing important but perhaps unrecognised pastoral support for students.

A collaborative team from the Technician Commitment, Science Council, Institute of Physics, Royal Society of Biology, Royal Society of Chemistry, University of Liverpool and University of Nottingham recently undertook a national survey in order to shed light on the important roles technicians play in student mental health and well-being. The survey attracted almost 1000 responses from technicians across a wide range of universities and research institutes.


This report offers an unprecedented insight into the ways in which technical staff in higher education support student mental health and well-being.

To mark the release of the report, the collaborating organisations will be holding a launch on Thursday 20th June. Please join us.
