The increased youth population entering higher education (HE), combined with growing awareness of the mental health issues young adults face, means that youth wellbeing challenges are increasingly brought into the domain of higher education institutions (HEIs). In recognition of the growing challenge of supporting the wellbeing of HE students, the Office for Students (the independent regulator of HE in the UK) has funded a number of initiatives, including supporting students.
Minds in developing a University Mental Health Charter (Office for Students, 2021).
We take the view that it is particularly important to create the necessary resources for students who are part of WIL programmes to support their emotional wellbeing and equip them with the necessary skills to be resilient and ready to adapt to the changes, both in the classroom and the workplace. We acknowledge the social, economic, and other inequalities can exacerbate student wellbeing issues (Antonucci, 2016) and a deeper exploration of issues relating to equity in higher education are explored in our Chapter XX in this WIL wellbeing Handbook.
