Wellbeing, Support and Inclusion

The Student Wellbeing & Inclusion team is here to help you feel content, healthy and supported.

 
 

As a result of government guidance relating to Covid 19, in particular the guidance about the need to implement social distancing, we are pausing all face to face services.

However all of our services will continue and will be delivered though other approaches – these will include:

  • Responding by email to queries or requests for support;
  • Continued administration of emailed/online applications for discretionary and other sources of funding;
  • Continued support in relation to learning adjustments;
  • Delivering wellbeing support over the telephone or via online video channels
  • Directing you to other sources of support such as Togetherall www.togetherall.com or to our Shelf Help resources.

It is understandable in the current atmosphere that you may be anxious or fearful and you can get support for these feelings from Togetherall – this is available 24 hours each day and can provide you with resources and access to an anonymous online community who will be sharing their own experiences and ideas about how best to cope.

Safeguarding Policy and Support Framework

The protection of members of the University community from harm and abuse is a key priority for Edinburgh Napier University. The University recognises its duty of care and is committed to providing a safe and protected environment for all its students and staff. The policies, procedures and support arrangements which protect and safeguard the University community and particularly children and vulnerable adults from harm and abuse are set out in the following Safeguarding Policy and Support guide which captures and describes the University’s safeguarding policy and support framework.

 

Counselling and Mental Wellbeing

The Student Counselling & Mental Wellbeing team offers a range of support and advice for students who are experiencing stress, anxiety or other mental health issues due to personal circumstances or academic pressures.

Remember to ask for help if you need it. It’s better to do this as soon as you realise things are getting difficult. We are an approachable team and we want you to feel supported as we know it can make a real difference.
