In the United Kingdom, although one in four adults reportedly experienced mental health difficulties within a one-year period, only 25% of them received treatment for their condition.

Hladchenko, Myroslava – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
The article explores academic identities in Ukrainian research universities whilst means-ends decoupling takes place at the state level.

Therefore, the overall research problem…
