This research report is about self-management with students who are experiencing mental illnesses. Self-management is about an individual and any applicable services working together in an effort for that person to live with a long-term condition (including mental illnesses like depression and anxiety disorders). The report presents a series of case studies followed by recommendations, as well as introducing the self-management terminology and student voice. This approach requires some pre-work to link the individualised nature of the case studies to broader student needs. The report is useful as an example of how students could conduct their own, participatory research in this area.
