A new law will allow students in Oregon to take ‘mental health days’ – sick days for mental health reasons. It’s the first of its kind in the US. Not so long ago, the University of Bristol asked students to opt-in to allow the university to contact their parents in case of a suspected mental health crisis. The University of Bristol has seen some 13 sudden deaths of students over the past three years – some confirmed suicides, some suspected. Student mental health is in crisis.
Against this backdrop, the language used to talk about mental health becomes a matter of vital importance.
Professor Rosemary Sage, Natasha Devon MBE, Professor Kamaldeep Bhui CBE, Dr Luke Sage and Dr Kim Orton discuss at the Festival of Higher Education.
