This booklet is a partnership between GCU Students' Association and Glasgow Caledonian University aimed at GCU students. It contains key information for every internal student-facing support service, as well as out-of-hours and local support options.
The Student Support Booklet was established as one of the outcomes of the Student Mental Health Agreement at GCU, which was introduced in 2017.
The Student Mental Health Agreement brings together your University and Students’ Association to champion student wellbeing and further enhance the support offered to students and staff on campus.
Over the past decade mental wellbeing has become a national priority—with an increased knowledge and understanding of the importance of supporting students through their studies in both higher and further education institutions. This spans from entire conferences dedicated to discussing how to support student welfare, to local initiatives at Universities and Colleges.
