The University of Gothenburg is participating in a study on students' mental health
Since November 2020 the University of Gothenburg has been participating in an international study on student mental health. The study is expected to continue until 2024. The study is being conducted in several countries and is managed by Harvard University. In Sweden the study is managed by researchers att Uppsala University and the University of Gothenburg is one of several participating higher education institutions in the country.
At the participating higher education institutions in Sweden, all students studying their first term of a programme at first-cycle level will be offered the chance to participate in the study. The offer is sent via e-mail.
The purpose of the study is to investigate students' mental health and which aspects are especially crucial for good mental health among students. The study also investigates different digital forms of support to see how they affect students' mental health. The University hopes that as many students as possible will wish to participate in order to contribute to our continued work surrounding student mental health.
