Falmouth University joins University Mental Health Charter Programme
30 September 2022
Falmouth University is delighted to be joining University Mental Health Charter Programme in its second year, demonstrating the institution’s commitment to improving support for staff and student mental health.
Published in 2019, the Charter Framework provides a set of evidence-informed principles to support universities across the UK in making mental health a university-wide priority.
Joining the Charter is a great way to ensure we continue to be aligned with best practice, are able to identify areas for development and collaborate to create an environment in which everyone can thrive.
The Charter Programme brings together universities committed to working towards these principles to share practice and create cultural change.
By joining the Charter, Falmouth University has made a commitment to working with staff and students to provide adequately resourced and effective support services, as well as creating an environment and culture that reduces poor mental health and promotes good mental health for the whole university community.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Emma Hunt, who is chairing Falmouth’s Mental Health Charter Steering Group, said: “I am very proud of the work we are doing to support the mental health and wellbeing of our campus community; joining the Charter is a great way to ensure we continue to be aligned with best practice, are able to identify areas for development and collaborate to create an environment in which everyone can thrive.”
