Personal support and information

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. The Mental Health Policy has recently been augmented with a Mental Health Case Conference Protocol for Students​ to address situations were a student requires co-ordinated cross-university support.

Guidance for colleagues regarding students transitioning gender

The general guidance for colleagues accompanies the Guidance for Students Transitioning Gender​. Staff who read this guidance must also familiarise themselves with the guidance for students.

This guidance is designed to focus on the support and advice Edinburgh Napier can offer to students who are undergoing any form of gender reassignment.
