Abstract

I present findings from collaborative research on interventions addressing the ‘mental health crisis’ in UK HE (MAPUKHE project), focusing on the emerging markets of digital apps and learning analytics for mental health. These form part of policy assemblages through which the question of ’student mental health’ comes to be subsumed under the logics and processes of HE restructuring in the UK. I discuss the discourse and assumptions associated with these technological approaches, alongside the potential implications of data mining and algorithmic tools aimed at crisis prevention.
