New research conducted by the NUS, that surveyed over 4000 young people, has found that more than 50% of students felt their mental health had declined since March this year. However, only 29% of those have sought mental health support. Loneliness and isolation appear to be having a significant impact on young people and their mental health. When asked what support they would like/need, respondents listed ‘access to a councillor’ and ‘someone to talk to’ as key needs.
