Online toolkit for staff to support student mental health

AMOSSHE InsightIn 2016/17 AMOSSHE supported a project undertaken by the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) to develop digital tools for staff to help support students’ mental health. This was part of the AMOSSHE Insight project funding programme.

The UHI project is now complete, and its main outcome is an online toolkit for all higher education staff to help them identify and support students who may be experiencing mental health challenges. The toolkit includes resources aimed at staff who teach and/or work with distance learning students, whose interactions chiefly occur online. The UHI project team has also written a report about how they developed the toolkit, its research background, and recommendations for the sector.

Each year AMOSSHE commissions a range of small projects from member organisations as part of AMOSSHE Insight. AMOSSHE is committed to a research agenda led by our members’ priorities, to support professional development and broaden the evidence base for Student Services in the UK. AMOSSHE supports members’ project work in order to share innovative research, expertise and best practice across the Student Services sector, and enable continuing development and improvement. This is the purpose and goal of AMOSSHE Insight: to develop and share insights for the benefit of all members.
