Today, the Labour Party made announcements on mental health, Eva Crossan Jory, NUS Vice President (Welfare) said: ‘Treatment and prevention of poor mental health is a key concern for students and we welcome the Labour Party’s manifesto commitment to funding action on mental health via the National Health Service.
‘NUS has repeatedly called for better integration between educational support in colleges and universities, and the healthcare treatment provided by the National Health Service. Incorporating action on mental health into educational and community services will ensure that students are enabled to continue their education while securing treatment.
‘Finally, while welcoming a focus on ensuring parity of treatment for mental health, NUS is also asking for parity of treatment by postcode. Effective services and support must be available to students regardless of where they are studying or live.’
