NUS Scotland’s Student Guarantee for Scotland
We are calling for:
– A student mental health action plan which implements the recommendations of Think Positive’s recent research.
– Ensuring there is equity of access to counselling services among all students, so that no student is disadvantaged because of the institution they attend.
-Taking crucial steps to improve waiting times for NHS mental health services, we are calling for action to reduce the difficulties students experience in accessing them.
– NUS Scotland also believes mental health and wellbeing must be embedded in learning and teaching practice and curriculum design, alongside the availability of training for teaching and student-facing staff.
