As a result of collaboration and co-creation, the toolkit makes embedding student mental health in the curriculum accessible: to individuals, staff groups and whole institutions, with resources which are research and evidence informed, alongside staff development activities which have been tried and tested, with relevant supporting case studies. The pedagogy underpinning curriculum design and practice within the toolkit is referenced throughout the resource.
This comprehensive resource makes essential reading for curriculum design and planning, and staff development for the benefit of student mental health within higher education.
It has been developed for academic staff, academic managers, university leaders and all of those involved in the development and delivery of curriculum, within higher education. It is grounded in the research literature and has been created through research and co-creation with students, academics, quality staff, learning and teaching staff and Principal Fellows.
The toolkit, a report on the project and a number of case studies demonstrating embedding mental health within the curriculum can be accessed below.
