Your emotional wellbeing

We want you to feel like you can 'just ask' whenever you’re facing questions or challenges at university. This is especially true where your mental health and emotional wellbeing are concerned, so if the pressures of studying lead you to feel anxious or in need of a helping hand at any point, we’d encourage you to simply reach out for the support we can offer.

Dedicated support

Student Support Services operates a counselling and emotional wellbeing service on campus. Our qualified counsellors and mental health professionals are here for you throughout your time at Stirling. Whatever you’re going through, we’re here to help.

Making an appointment

If you're a current University of Stirling student and would like to access our service, please complete our Student Support registration form. We'll ensure you receive the most appropriate support for your needs. We will treat you with dignity and respect, uphold the highest standards of confidentiality and offer you non-judgemental support to help you better understand your feelings and emotions.

Mental health condition

If you have a diagnosed mental health condition and would like to know about the kind of support you can get during your studies, we have a dedicated Mental Health Student Adviser who is on hand to help. We want to make sure all our students get the most out of university life, and we provide a range of assistance services that you can benefit from after starting at Stirling. 

Current students can start the process of connecting with our Mental Health Student Adviser by filling out our Initial Identification of Needs form.
