This qualitative study, conducted in a UK university, reports on an analysis of the perceptions of students and staff towards academics’ support for students with their mental health concerns. The analysis revealed the need for staff training in supporting students with their mental health, specific training in pastoral care for personal tutors and support for staff themselves when supporting students. Additionally, it recommends universities develop a holistic policy on student mental health.
