- connect students with innovative, low-level mental health and wellbeing support, with sound clinical underpinning
- provide self-management and resilience tools, to act as early intervention and crisis prevention
- enhance support for staff as well as students.
How we helped
Between September 2017 and May 2018, over 790 BCU students and staff registered on Togetherall – 3% of the university population. For many of these people Togetherall was their sole source of support, while for others it was the initial support they received before they engaged with other services. In a recent survey, 76% of BCU respondents said that they used the service outside of office hours. 79% reported that Togetherall had helped to improve their personal wellbeing, most commonly in terms of ‘feeling more able to share’ and ‘feeling less isolated’. 68% of staff and student members said they found the service helpful. The service reaches a diverse mix of BCU members, proving that digital doesn’t have a ‘type.’
