Student wellbeing is really important, and we want you give you as much support as possible so that you can feel more content and succeed in your goals, personally and academically.
There are lots of resources to help you - including counselling with Maggie Melville, our Student Counsellor & Wellbeing Coordinator. In addition to this there is an online counselling service currently offered through UHI too.
You can also access the online community Togetherall, which provides completely confidential 24hr support from trained professionals along with creative tools for expression. This is free for all students and staff, please use your @uhi.ac.uk email to register.
Do you have a wellbeing or safety concern for yourself or a fellow student?
The college is committed to providing all college users – especially children, young people and vulnerable adults who may be at risk of harm - with a safe and supportive environment.
It is important for you to look out for yourself and your fellow students so if something doesn’t seem right to you or if you have a concern about somebody else’s safety, then we need to hear from you. Areas of concern may be many and varied – for example, physical harm, sexual exploitation, gender-based violence, emotional harm, radicalisation, neglect, subject to controlling behaviours, financial harm, discrimination.
You can talk to any member of college staff or to the Safeguarding Officers. The College Safeguarding Policy and Procedures can give you more information but if in doubt always tell someone.
The safeguarding officers are:
Liz Richardson – 01631 559673, firstname.lastname@example.org
Elaine Munro – 01631 550505, email@example.com
Kath Polley - Kathryn.firstname.lastname@example.org
