Think Positive offers free consultancy support to those taking part in the Student Mental Health Agreement project. This is delivered via online meetings, emails and telephone support along with a range of free resources.
In April 2023 Think Positive co-produced the National Student Mental Health Campaign #HelpingStudentsThrive alongside a group of students with lived experience of mental ill health.

Student Mental Health Agreement Project
Think Positive’s Student Mental Health Agreement project (SMHA) is a collaboration project between the student’s association and college/university. The project sets a clear framework to help promote and develop their mental health support offer for students.
Student Mental Health Research
Improving mental health and wellbeing support for Scotland’s students
In 2020 Think Positive, funded by the Scottish Government, commissioned research to evaluate the effectiveness of student mental health support in Scotland and to support the FE and HE sectors to further develop appropriate practice in the delivery of mental health and wellbeing services to students. It is believed to be the first of its kind in Scotland, covering both further and higher education students.
Each month Think Positive organises and facilitates a space for representatives from colleges, universities and student’s associations across Scotland meet to discuss the challenges and opportunities they are facing around topics relating to student mental health. It provides an opportunity for them to connect, learn from each other and share best practice. More information about The Forum here.
