Mental Health Awareness Week

Menopause awareness

The menopause affects around half of the nation's workforce and yet it is rarely talked about in the workplace. At the University of Stirling, we know that this life event can influence an individual’s wellbeing at work, and we are committed to creating an inclusive and supportive environment where colleagues who are experiencing menopausal symptoms are able to get the support they need, when they need it. 

Support for people affected by addiction

If you would like some support with anything relating to alcohol, drugs, smoking or gambling, there are a number of resources which can help to tackle all types of addiction.

Preventing and tackling gender based and sexual violence

At the University of Stirling, we are committed to taking all steps in our power to prevent and tackle gender based and sexual violence in all its forms - including rape and sexual assault, harassment, stalking or coercive control. In partnership with the University of Stirling Students' Union, we want to encourage a culture of respect and create a university community that does not tolerate – and feels comfortable to challenge and report – gender based and sexual violence in Scottish society.

This website summarises our joint approach to this issue and provides information about support available for those affected by gender based or sexual violence, or those supporting a friend or colleague.
