Mental Health issues are becoming more and more prevalent in the modern world, with 1 in 4 people experiencing a Mental Health issue each year. In the wake of this, Lewisham College has joined the Association of Colleges (AoC) Mental Health Charter to ensure a consistent and positive approach to staff and students’ wellbeing.

Under the AoC's charter, the College will provide targeted individual mental health support and training to ensure the wellbeing of students and staff. The College will also work on strengthening relationships with local health and voluntary sector mental health groups and promote the benefits of physical activity and sport. 

Asfa Sohail, Principal at Lewisham College, said: "At Lewisham College, we are fully committed to creating an inclusive and supportive environment with equality of opportunity for all. We’re pleased to be part of the AoC's Charter to ensure we continue to provide an open and inclusive environment to challenge the stigma around mental health and support our students and staff, especially in these unprecedented times."

Staff wellbeing will also be maintained through a consistent and positive approach, and relevant information will be provided to parents and carers. Student views will be collected by the Student Union and other student representative bodies to monitor the effectiveness of these measures.

Students at Lewisham College can access a range of student support services to get the most out of their time at College. Find out more at lewisham.ac.uk/studentsupport
