A number of in-depth assessments of need on topics of local priority will be published throughout 2014. This section will tell you what is coming soon.

Student Health  Friday, July 14, 2017

The student health needs assessment report identifies the health needs of students studying at Higher York institutions. This includes students studying at University of York, York St John University, York College, and Askham Bryan College.

The report was commissioned by the York Health and Wellbeing Board and highlights the key issues for student health, including mental health, in the city. The report also documents existing resources and identifies the main challenges to the city to improve student health and wellbeing.

The report is available in two versions – a summary report and the full report.

Mental Health  Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Mental Health







This content has recently been published (on 30th July 2014) and forms a starting point for the information currently available around mental health locally. The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment is an assessment of need that is based upon changing information and will be updated regularly to reflect changes. 

As such, we will be holding a consultation event on the content published here in order to give people the opportunity to feedback on the information and identify any gaps. This will be held on Monday 8th December (postponed from Monday 13th October) between 9:30 - 12:00 at the City of York Council's West Offices. Places are limited so people are asked to book by e-mailing healthandwellbeing@york.gov.uk

Future content updates to follow the mental health content are planned for 2014 and these will include a focus on older adults; Travellers & Roma Gypsies; and young people.
