The Scottish Student Mental Health Research Network (ScotSMART) is a recently formed network, which focusses on student mental health in Scotland. It brings together academics, professional services, practitioners and other student mental health stakeholders to address a broad range of topics and to facilitate research and knowledge exchange opportunities across the Scottish Higher Education sector.
The groups aim is to improve research focused on student mental health wellbeing by providing a hub for academics and practitioners to:
• Create a bespoke evidence-base to identify ways to promote mental health and wellbeing initiatives and create avenues of support
• Improve the quality and impact of student mental health research across Scottish Higher Education Institutions
• Enhance and foster a collaborative environment which embraces key stakeholders and leads to impacts in policy and practice.
