Ecosse : Students with mental health problems in Scotland face discrimination Read

le 19 janvier 2015

[TFN] Charity and union partnership aims to tackle stigma to make it easier for students to stay in education.

A mental health charity has teamed up with Scotland’s students’ union to combat the discrimination of students with mental health problems in colleges and universities.

See Me says it knows of students who don’t get the same opportunities as others due to the stigma of their illness and is launching a pilot project to tackle this with the National Union of Students (NUS) Scotland.

‘Activism on and off Campus’, which has been given £20,000 funding by See Me, will recruit student ambassadors from student associations at three institutions, Forth Valley College, Edinburgh College and the University of the West of Scotland.
