Most people associate investment banking with long hours and lots of stress — but one of the world’s best known banks is now breaking new ground by funding a programme to help students with their mental health. Goldman Sachs (GS) has partnered with charity Mind to fund a new “Mentally Healthy Universities” programme at 10 universities across the UK.

The investment bank on Tuesday pledged £1.5m over two years. The funding will provide support and specialist training for students and teachers. Beth Robotham, a Goldman VP who works on “Human Capital Management”, told Yahoo Finance UK the course would provide “training for students in their first and third year to support those transitions” between home, university, and the workplace.

They felt very strongly they wanted to do something with young people in mental health. They are parents themselves, they work with graduates.”

The universities that will benefit from the funding are:

  • University of Bath

  • University of Bristol

  • University of Cambridge

  • University of Central Lancashire (UCLan)

  • University of Greenwich

  • Leeds Beckett University

  • London School of Economics (LSE)

  • Oxford Brookes University

  • University of Sheffield

  • Teesside University

The universities were selected out of 30 that had applied for funding. A committee of Mind and Goldman Sachs staff selected the winning institutions, based on factors including need, diversity, and delivery track record.

Javid bids to convince City of Brexit 'opportunity'

Javid bids to convince City of Brexit 'opportunity' Sajid Javid has called in 20 of the City's most senior figures for talks in an effort to convince a hitherto-sceptical constituency that a no-deal Brexit presents opportunities for the UK financial services industry. Sky News has learnt that the chancellor and John Glen, the City minister, will hold talks on Monday with executives from companies including Barclays, Goldman Sachs and the London Stock Exchange Group. Sources briefed on the meeting's agenda said it would address "Brexit opportunities and challenges", and that it was not intended to cover the Whitehall spending review that Mr Javid will unveil this week.

Richard Gnodde, chief executive of Goldman Sachs International, said in a statement: “We believe employers have an important role to play in changing attitudes towards mental health through providing support, resources and open conversation around an often stigmatized subject. We look forward to supporting Mind and these universities in launching this critical programme.”

Goldman’s commitment to mental health is somewhat at odds with the traditional image of investment banking. The profession is notorious for long hours and high-pressured environments.

Moritz Erhardt, a 21-year-old intern at Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAC), died in 2013 after working for 72-hours straight. The inquest into his death ruled that he died of an epileptic fit but said “it may be that because Moritz had been working so hard his fatigue was a trigger for the seizure that killed him.”

Robotham, who is also deputy chair of the City Mental Health Alliance, told Yahoo Finance UK: “Over the years unfortunately we’ve seen many tragic instances of loss of life, people experiencing challenges with their mental health in the workplace and outside.

“I think the industry, the City, and the country, and, frankly, globally people are trying to make change in this space because we’ve suddenly become much more comfortable to talk about the topic. We certainly wouldn’t be having this conversation 10 years ago.”

‘Millennials expect support for wellbeing’

Erhardt’s death proved the nadir of working conditions for junior staff at investment banks. Most majors have since introduced rules to prevent burnout, mainly by limiting the time junior staff can work at weekends. Robotham said Goldman has on-site psychologists, psychiatrists, and mental health first aiders to look after staff.

“The world is changing and what employees expect of their employers is also changing,” she said. “More than half of our organisation are millennials and they quite rightly expect a lot from employers in terms of support for wellbeing.”

'Inbetweeners' star James Buckley accuses 'This Morning' of exploiting mental illness

'Inbetweeners' star James Buckley accuses 'This Morning' of exploiting mental illness about his struggles with anxiety, because he thinks they have ‘baited’ people with mental health problems to make entertainment. “I was asked to go on This Morning and daytime TV shows and chat shows to talk about it,” he said. “I’m like, ‘I did talk about it. You didn’t report it properly and it made me even more anxious and depressed’.” © Provided by Oath Inc. The Inbetweeners star revealed he was put off going on the morning show after an appearance Kerry Katona made (PA) He continued: “The reason why I wasn’t comfortable talking about my anxiety on certain shows is that I thought the whole thing was sort of hypocritical.
