A unique new specialist NHS service in Greater Manchester will help university students to achieve their ambitions and receive the help they need to overcome significant mental illness was launched at a dedicated event on the 18th November 2019.
The Greater Manchester university student mental health service pilot will provide expert support for students who have complex health needs – giving them timely access to professional help for conditions including psychosis, depression, personality disorders and eating disorders.
It is intended to meet the increasing mental health needs of university students and prevent them “falling between the cracks” of university and NHS services at a time when they are often away from the support they may get at home.
Around 500 students a year are expected to use the £1.6m service, which is the result of a unique partnership in England between Greater Manchester’s universities and the city region’s NHS.
