More students are experiencing mental health problems than ever before. The number of students reporting a mental health problem is five times greater today than it was ten years ago, while the number of students dropping out because of mental health problems has trebled.
Every student taking part in the 27 27 challenge is sending a clear message: it’s time to take our mental health seriously, and we won’t give up until everyone with a mental health problem gets support and respect.
Mind provides a national voice and local support for anybody experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign against discrimination, fight for better services, and offer information and support. By taking part in 27 27 you’re raising awareness of student mental health and helping us be there for the 27% of us who report a mental health problem while at university.
