Who is the service for?

If you have been diagnosed as having a previous mental health condition, or if you are starting to experience a decline in your mental health which is impacting on your ability to study, please do not hesitate to contact the Student Wellbeing Centre or come along to a drop-in. This will give you the opportunity to meet with one of our advisors who will be able to offer you support and guidance.

Role of the Mental Health Advisor.

A Mental Health Advisor will assist and support individuals who are experiencing a range of emotional and psychological difficulties.  They will be able to co-ordinate support for students which includes accessing internal and external services and will act as a point of contact throughout the duration of their studies.

What to expect in an appointment.

A drop-in appointment will last for 15 minutes and will give you the chance to discuss your presenting concerns. If it is deemed helpful by yourself and an advisor, a follow-up appointment can be made to discuss these in further detail. These appointments often last between 30-60 minutes.
The support offered can include:
– Advice and practical help which will be tailored to the individual
– Support and signposting to appropriate services within the University and local community.
– Developing person-centred Learning Support Plans where appropriate.
– Supporting individuals who are eligible to apply for Disabled Students Allowance.
