Mental health is important at every stage of life. Our mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social well-being and affects the way we think, behave and feel. The stage of your mental health determine how you handle stress and the choices you do. Poor mental health can have negative impact on your physical health. It could be hard to know when or where to look for help. It’s OK to ask for help!

Signs to look out for help:

★ If you are worrying more than usual.

★ If you are having feeling or thoughts that are difficult to understand and cope.

★ If you have negative emotions and thoughts that have an impact on your day-today life.

★ If you worried about someone’s mental health.

About The Project

It is acknowledged that students face a number of daily pressures ranging from financial, academic and personal issues that can have adverse impact on their mental health. The traditional approaches involving print and online literature are not engaging. MHA has a pourpose to look at different ways of supporting and de-stigmatising mental health within the student population in Scotland.

If you or somebody you care need help and support can't wait to become too late before you seek for help.
