Improving student mental wellbeing and tackling the stigma attached to mental illness.
Who we are
Think Positive is NUS Scotland’s student mental health project. The project aims to find ways to support students experiencing mental ill health, tackle stigma and discrimination, and promote wellbeing in colleges and universities
Today is World Mental Health Day. The theme this year is 'young people and mental health in a changing world' and this has never been more pertinent. This week we have a guest blog from our Deputy President at NUS Scotland, Gemma Jones. Improving student mental health is a personal priority for Gemma and in this blog she discusses why it's so important to her.
This week we have a guest blog from the lovely folk at Stirling University Students' Association. They'll be sharing the work their sabbaticals are focusing on this year and how they plan on working on improving student wellbeing.
