Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families - New mental health resources for Further Education Colleges

March 2022

Around one in six 17 to 22 year olds has an identifiable mental health condition, and college staff report significant increases in students with both diagnosed and undiagnosed conditions.

Further education is a unique educational environment with its own challenges.

Staff may spend less time with students, making it more difficult to notice or raise concerns. Students may have additional pressures, like money or housing, which can contribute to mental health concerns.

This section of the website will support college staff with some of the most common mental health issues they see in their students.
