As all of our support is currently being delivered by phone or online our building based volunteer opportunities are on hold. We plan for these opportunities to resume again in the future when this is possible. In the meantime you are still welcome to get in contact to find out more. Current opportunities will be advertised on this web page; we are also happy to chat about your ideas! Remote volunteer roles that have come up from time to time have included support with admin, fundraising, blogs and awareness raising.

Volunteers wanted for Support in Mind Scotland for Students Project

Support in Mind Scotland for Students is a new volunteer project led by volunteers who have a connection to University and a passion for supporting student mental health. A group of 5 volunteers have started the pilot project together with the National Information Service team. There are growing concerns that while the desire for mental health support has been rising sharply amongst students in recent years, it is not always obvious for students to know where to turn.

SiMS for Students aims to increase awareness of the need for student mental health support, and add another avenue outside of the University to those who are struggling. Volunteers have been busy mapping the mental health support available to students at their Universities and looking at ways to increase awareness of supports through promoting SiMS National Information Service

This volunteering role is flexible and does not require a specific time commitment, however there is a fortnightly volunteer group catch up which is currently held on fortnightly Tuesdays 9-9.30 am.

We are very excited about where this pilot project could lead and keen to grow!
