The national student mental health survey conducted by USI in early 2018 is now being analysed for initial findings.  USI’s Mental Health Programme Manager, Aoife Price, is conducting the analysis with support and resourcing from the Irish government’s Health Service Executive.

She said:

“I think the sheer number of respondents to the survey is indicative of students having something to say about the state of their own mental health.  We’re processing thousands of pieces of important data students have provided us with, in an effort to paint a clear and focused picture of what the state of mental health of Ireland’s students actually is – informing future evidence based policy and ensuring the campaigns and strategies of the future are best able to help the most students most in need.”
