Mental health problems are not uncommon, estimated to be experienced by 1 in 4 of the UK population ( 2018). Whilst these range from mild to severe, it is concerning that there are 4500 suicides in England each year; this is the leading cause of death in young people (DHSC 2019).

Mental health and wellbeing are of particular interest to those participating in and involved with pre-registration nurse education because of increasing levels of mental ill-health in student populations generally (Universities UK 2015, 2018) and in health care students in particular.

Focusing on pre-registration nurse students, what lessons can be learned?
