The 'Trends' in Student Health Promotion in Higher Education
An increase in student numbers

The growth in the higher education student population demonstrates specific trends that influence and raise issues regarding the health and well-being of students which are mainly centred on mental health.
The challenge is to address the needs of the students and by linking with key partners, working in line with key policy/strategy and programme drivers and having appropriate systems in place that ensures a student centred approach.
This will support and optimise the student experience, enabling students to maximise their potential and foster positive health behaviours for life.
Over the years we have seen a growing increase of students moving into higher education but with it has come the increase in student fees. These pose as just two examples of 'trends' which are giving rise to 'issues' which are having an impact of the health and well-being of a student and their university experience.
These are 'challenges' which need to be addressed by having systems in place that ensure that all students have every opportunity to be healthy, happy and achieve their full potential.
