As student suicides rise by 50% in five years, Edward Pinkney asks: whose responsibility really is student mental health?

 

When, after a nine-year wait, the Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCP) published an update to their comprehensive report into student mental health in September 2011, the paper was met with enthusiasm by the media. One year later, on the anniversary of the report, a Google News search in the UK for 'student mental health' showed zero results. And only this week, a freedom of information request to the Office for National Statistics revealed that student suicides have risen by almost 50% in the past five years.
