Moodbeam is working with universities to support better student mental-health provision.
After listening to a presentation by Moodbeam to its PHD students, Hull University’s Director for Student Support and Vice Chancellor decided to trial its prototypes. On the back of those trials, it became the first university in the UK to place an order for a number of Moodbeam Ones to be provided to its students experiencing poor mental health.
The University also sees Moodbeam One as a self-care tool, allowing for discreet self monitoring, early intervention and a vital communications aid between student and its support services.
Dr Anji Gardner, Director of Student Support Services at Hull University, describes what Moodbeam could mean for the University: “We are looking forward to working with Moodbeam on this exciting initiative, working together to enhance the experience and outcomes for our students. We know that this is an important moment in any young person’s life and we want our students to feel supported every day, every step of the way” .

Mental disorders account for a large proportion of the disease burden in young people in all societies. Most begin during youth (12–24 years of age), although they are often first detected later in life. (Science direct.com)
