Mental health services available to students

Alisa Wylie made this Freedom of Information request to Glasgow Caledonian University as part of a batch sent to 16 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

In 2016-2017, how many students accessed mental welfare counselling services and how long did it take for them to access these services after raising an issue? Are there any reports or statistics that indicate how effective the counselling services have been for students struggling with their mental health?
Yours faithfully,
