A Mayo Sinn Fein Deputy has launched an online well-being survey to capture the impact of Covid-19 on third level students.
Sinn Féin Spokesperson for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Rose Conway-Walsh, says they want to hear directly from students in third-level on how they are coping with all the pressures related to Covid-19 and remote / blended learning.
She says students and parents have contacted her to say that Covid has had a significant impact on mental health and wellbeing, generally.
Deputy Conway-Walsh says that only by really listening to students will we be able to support and assist them.
She has been speaking to Midwest News.
