The King’s Wellbeing Survey was the university’s first attempt designed to measure mental wellbeing of its students across the whole institution. Built in collaboration with colleagues from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience and Student Transition and Outcomes, the resulting survey used a combination of clinical and non-clinical scales to represent the multifaceted and complex nature of mental wellbeing. In addition to validated questionnaires, the survey asked several questions based on students’ experience at King’s.
The inaugural survey was launched on 23 February 2022 and closed on Sunday 13 March with a total of 4,695 student responses. This figure represents approximately 10% of the total student population enrolled in 2021/22. Foremost, this data will help ensure that improvements to mental health and wellbeing services are focused in the right areas and that we can measure the impact of what we do using robust evidence. The survey will be run for a second time in 2023.
