  19. 'Sharp rise' in student mental illness

    BBC News Education

    Almost five times as many students as 10 years ago have disclosed a mental health condition to their university, say researchers.

    Woman looking at computer screen

    In 2015-16, more than 15,000 UK-based first-year students disclosed mental health issues, Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR) analysis suggests.

    The 2006 figure was about 3,000 and the rise risks overwhelming university services, the IPPR says.

    At some universities one in four students is using or waiting to use counselling services, and some report dramatic increases.

    At Leeds University, the report says, there has been a 50% increase in demand during the past five years, with an 18% rise in the past 12 months alone.
