Scotland’s Armed Forces Children’s Charity

University Mental Health Day brings the university community together to open conversation and encourage meaningful change towards the future of student mental health.


No student should never feel alone. 

The campaign’s aim is to inspire conversation and encourage others to take action and create change. Now more than ever it’s important to get the nation talking about student mental health.

Students, from serving and veteran families, should never feel alone.

Forces Children Scotland is committed to ensuring no student from a serving, reservist or veteran family will feel alone, when it comes to accessing anything which helps support mental health and wellbeing.

We currently do so through two main ways:

University and College Fund

Your Mind Matters Project
