London South Bank University (LSBU) has announced a new programme to help black students tackle their mental health issues while in higher education. This new initiative will enable African and Caribbean students to access better mental health services and support, while reducing inequality they often experience while studying. 

The programme is backed by a £380,000 fund under LSBU’s ‘Proactive and Preventative Interventions for Black Students’ project, which is part of the mental health funding competition programme funded by the Office for Students (OfS). 

It is expected to be run by LSBU, Lambeth College, Healthy London Partnership / NHS London, NHS Good Thinking and South Bank Students Union.   

The project will directly benefit black students at LSBU and Lambeth College, as well as black students across London. The £380,000 project includes £181,499 of new funding from OfS and over £200,000 in match-funding from LSBU and its partners. 

Rosie Holden, Director of Student Services at LSBU, said, “We are committed to eliminating the racial inequalities faced by our students, creating an environment where everyone can achieve the academic success they are capable of.    

“This £380,000 project will be led in partnership with our students and have co-creation at its heart. The project will make a significant contribution to LSBU’s wider efforts to improve their experience and reduce the structural inequalities Black students can face when accessing higher education and mental health services. “ 

She added: I’d like to thank everyone involved in leading the development of this important programme. The £380,000 funding will make a huge difference to the lives of LSBU students and students across London and we are very grateful to OfS for their support.”
