healthy body healthy mind

The Healthy Body Healthy Mind Awards are a partnership initiative between NUS Scotland and Scottish Student Sport, funded by the Scottish Government, which focus on the link between sports, physical activity, smoking prevention and mental health. 

Your Students’ Union recognises that good physical and mental health can help to make students’ lives better and is proud to hold a 4 star Award for 2016/17

This year we have continued the initiative with activities aimed at increasing student participation and physical activity such as 5K a Day.

We also polled students to find out about your smoking habits. It was great to see that smokers are in the minority. If you are a smoker and want to quit then you can get help from your GP, the pharmacy on campus, by calling Smokeline 0800 84 84 84 or going to

Behind the scenes we’ve been busy training staff and students in Scottish Mental Health First Aid and working with students to raise awareness and reduce stigma around mental health. 

We promise to bring you even more opportunities to get involved, be active and have fun while you look after mind and body and get the most of being a student here.
