No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

***Application deadline extended until Friday 9th January 2015***

Thanks to See Me Community Innovation Funding, we are launching a pilot project working with Forth Valley College, Edinburgh College and the University of the West of Scotland, recruiting students with lived experience of mental ill health to lead campaigns tackling stigma and discrimination on campus.

This project will involve the volunteers from each institution finding out what the issues related to stigma and discrimination on campus are, and working with their peers, the students' association and NUS Scotland to tackle those issues. 

We want students who have experienced mental health problems to lead this project, supported by NUS Scotland and their students associations. This will involve researching, designing and leading a campaign tackling an issue that contributes to stigma and/or discrimination relating to mental ill health, on campus.

The volunteers will work as a team at each institution. We will provide training in areas including activism and campaigning, workshop facilitation, and mental health first aid. Then together we will gather information from fellow students and design and carry out a campaign on campus that tackles stigma and discrimination. 

If you are a student at Forth Valley College, Edinburgh College, or the University of the West of Scotland and are interested in the role, please fill in a short application form. The deadline for applications will be Friday 9th January 2015- click here to see the role description, and click here for the application form. Please get in touch if you have any problems with the form and we can find a solution!

*Applicants will be invited to a training day on 30th January 2015 in Edinburgh.*
