As part of the NUS Think Positive Student Mental Health Agreement project, GCU Students’ Association and Glasgow Caledonian University have committed together since 2017-18 to creating and implementing an annual comprehensive and coordinated Student Mental Health Agreement (the Agreement).
As part of drawing up the Agreement each year, both parties, led by the Students’ Association full time officer with responsibility for Mental health and wellbeing, have mapped current provision of services, looked at trends and issues affecting students at GCU and in the wider student movement and consulted with student and university representatives.
The impact of the previous year’s Agreement is evaluated in order to ensure that there is a proactive momentum each year with the overall aim of ensuring that good mental health and wellbeing is achievable for all students at GCU, and that a “whole institution approach” is taken to achieve this and enhance a culture of support, openness and inclusivity around mental health across campus.
If you have any questions, or want to get involved, get in touch with this years full time officer lead on the project, Zoe Nicholson, Vice President SCEBE, at VP.SCEBE@GCUStudents.co.uk!
