Dear Brunel University,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information:

1. What has been your actual expenditure on core counselling and mental health services in each academic year 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20?

2. What is your budget for counselling and mental health services services for the 2020-21 academic year?

3. What has been your expenditure on online mental wellbeing tools (eg. Silver Cloud, Big White Wall etc.) in each academic year 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20?

4. How much money has been budgeted to be spent on online mental wellbeing tools (eg. Silver Cloud, Big White Wall etc.) for the 2020/21 academic year?

5. How many staff in counselling (or allied professions), nursing or social work professions were employed whose role is to explicitly support students' overall mental wellbeing for each academic year 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20, and anticipated staffing for 2020/21?

6. How many staff were employed at the university who are non-mental health professionals, where their role is to, in part, provide support for students' overall mental wellbeing, for the same period and anticipated staffing for 2020/21?

For Questions 5 and 6, please represent this as a total number of staff and, if a staff member has multiple roles, the estimated FTE of their role dedicated to mental health. (For example, if a staff member has multiple roles and 0.2 FTE of their role is dedicated to mental health, record as 0.2.)

I would prefer to receive this information electronically.

I look forward to receiving your response within 20 working days. If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits, please provide advice and assistance, under Section 16 obligations, as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act.

If you can identify other ways in which my request can be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to clarify what I am asking for. Please find my contact details below.

Yours faithfully,

Connor O'Halloran
