The Universities Minister has visited Leeds as part of an awareness day for students suffering mental health conditions.
Chris Skidmore, the Minister of State for Universities, met with staff and students from the Leeds University Union. He also spoke to representatives from Student Minds, a mental health charity for students, which recently moved from Oxford to Leeds.
The visit comes on University Mental Health Day, which aims to increase awareness of the provisions in place for young people who may be struggling to cope.
It also coincides with a government announcement, which promised to set up a special task force to support students dealing with the challenges of moving into higher education.
