Student Mental Health Policy
Edinburgh Napier University is committed to creating an inclusive environment for students from all backgrounds. As a University that seeks to open Higher Education to all those who can benefit from it, we are aware that many students are likely to have either experienced or will experience mental distress at times. The Edinburgh Napier University Student Mental Health Policy aims to create a context and culture in the University which ensures that students experiencing mental health difficulties receive the appropriate support.
Students can go to a drop-in between 12-1pm each Wednesday Student HUB, Merchiston Campus. If they can't make this time, they can email email@example.com, and a counsellor will reply, usually the same day.
More information for students is available on the student portal.
Any of the counsellors will be happy to discuss concerns you have for individual students. You can contact us on ext 2929 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
