If you are worried about the wellbeing of a friend or flatmate, you can voice your concerns to a member of staff in SAcS or refer to our Student Mental Health policy.
Emergency drop-in appointments with a counsellor are also available. You can book one of these by reporting to the Student Enquiry Zone (SEZ) on Level 1 of the Library. Or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org / phone 01382 308805. This is a confidential service and the student you're raising a concern about will not be told of your involvement.
The Advisory Service offer drop-in online appointments as well. To book, email: email@example.com
If you believe there to be an immediate risk of harm, you can phone Police Scotland on 101 to arrange a welfare check. You can do this anonymously, if preferred, however you will be required to provide an address for the student.
It may seem dishonest to go behind a friend, flatmate, or fellow students back in this manner. But doing so can create opportunities for them to access the right support. Especially if they are unable or unwilling to do this themselves.
We provide training for students to support their friends through university life.
Semester 1 - Sunday 4th December 2022
Semester 2 - Thursday 2nd February 2023
Information will be coming soon about how to book a training session.
