UCLPartners in partnership with Koa Health, have developed an online student mental health service called Mind Your Mood.
Mind Your Mood includes a self-assessment questionnaire that helps students in assessing their current mental health and wellbeing, and recommends support available, including connecting with services that might be helpful. The information students share is confidential and not shared with the university.
UCLPartners began to develop the service in response to the impact of the pandemic on student mental health. The UCL COVID-19 Social Study showed that the pandemic hit the 18-25 demographic hardest during the first lockdown in terms of their wellbeing.
To create Mind Your Mood, UCLPartners collaborated with Koa Health, a digital mental healthcare platform. A steering committee included students, NHS IAPT coordinators, private GPs in the UK and mental health providers from Doctor Care Anywhere.
