We’re working with students to coproduce a National Student Mental Health Campaign!
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. One of the recommendations from this research was
“NUS Scotland could work with the Scottish Government to lead a national awareness-building campaign to reduce stigma relating to student mental health and to challenge preconceived ideas about who support is for/not for.”
We worked with a group of students with lived experience of mental ill health to coproduce the #HelpingStudentsThrive Campaign which focuses on stigma.
This campaign launched in April 2023 and can be found here.
