Efforts to address mental health issues in higher education institutions by the AWARE project

KMOP Education and Innovation Hub, in cooperation with the organisations Społeczna Akademia Nauk (Poland), Cardet (Cyprus), Spectrum Research Centre (Ireland), and Universidad Del Pais Vasco/ Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea (Spain), has embarked on efforts to address a critical gap in mental health awareness, particularly anxiety, within Higher Education (HE) institutions across Europe.

Acknowledging the lack of sufficient evidence supporting good practices, policies and initiatives at the national or regional level to effectively deal with mental health issues in HE institutions, the consortium has developed a thorough Need Identification and Analysis to gain a comprehensive understanding of the current state of mental health awareness and anxiety management in the European context.

The results were then used to create Good Practice Guidelines that will serve as a roadmap for addressing mental health issues in HE institutions.

The activities were carried out in the context of the AWARE project, an Erasmus+ initiative dedicated to promoting anxiety and mental health awareness among Higher Education Institutions’ staff and students.
