Student Disability Service

Mental health code of practice (currently under review)

This Code of Practice sets out guidance for helping, supporting, or referring students who may have mental health difficulties or illness at the University of Edinburgh.

It should be read in conjunction with the leaflet ‘Helping Distressed Students, a Guide for University staff’, which takes staff through a step by step process and approach both if the situation is urgent or if it does not require immediate action. It also provides a brief guide to a range of University support services that can also help students with mental ill health.
