Mental Health

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear West Lothian College,

Under the Freedom of Information Act can you please provide me with the following information:

On a ratio of 1 per 1000 students, how many did withdraw this academic year?

How many of these students indicated they had mental health issues or required counselling support?

What was the attainment rate of students with disabilities in your institution in Academic Year 13/14; 14/15; and 15/16?

Yours faithfully,

Jim Brown
