Stithians (Cornish: Stedhyans), also known as St. Stythians, is a village and civil parish in Cornwall in England. It lies in the middle of the triangle bounded by Redruth, Helston and Falmouth. Its population (2001) is 2,004.

The parish is mainly agricultural, lying south of the Gwennap mining area and north of the quarrying areas of Rame and Longdowns. The River Kennall runs through the parish: in the 19th century, this river worked a flour mill and a number of gunpowder mills, machinery at a foundry, and a paper mill.

The former ecclesiastical parish of Carnmenellis is now merged with Stithians parish.

Stithians was a civil parish in the Redruth Rural District from 1894 until 1934 and in Kerrier Rural District from 1934 until 1974. Rural districts were abolished in 1974 and Cornwall is now a unitary authority.
