Student Mental Health

NUS Scotland's Think Positive project is focused on finding ways to support students experiencing mental ill health, tackle stigma and discrimination, and promote wellbeing in colleges and universities.

We want a healthy, happy student population across Scotland, but even more so, we want a student population that can talk openly and without concern about their mental wellbeing.

This project researches the experiences of students living with mental health problems to find out what stigma and discrimination they are facing, and how they manage studying alongside their illness.

Think Positive gives students and student support services in universities and colleges a better understanding of the best way to support students and ensure student health needs are being met.
