Bristol University Sees 154% Increase In Students With Mental Health Problems

By George Bowden

Bristol University has been hit by a wave of suspected student suicides in the past two years.

A leading university hit by a wave of suspected suicides over the past two years has seen a 154% increase in the number of students with mental health difficulties since 2012, new figures reveal.

Some 2,947 Bristol University students were recorded as having problems with their mental health last year, equal to around 11% of the campus population, data obtained by HuffPost UK shows.

Around 1,158 students were registered as having mental health difficulties in 2012, equal to around 5% of the campus population at the time.

Bristol University said the figures reflect a similar rise at universities nationally, and that it a new “university-wide” approach to mental health could mean a short-term increase in the numbers of students accessing support services.
