Should parents be told if their children are struggling at university? A proposal has been put forward by the Higher Education Minister, Sam Gyimah, who says more attention should be paid to the mental health of students in universities. The institutions, he says, should act in loco parentis and students should be asked for permission to contact their parents or trusted person if they are facing a crisis. Jenni speaks to him, Dr Sophie Flemig, a personal tutor at a Russell Group University and Deborah who has an eighteen year old daughter who’s just started at university.
