Support for students


The Mental Health Team provide support by helping you evaluate the practical impact that mental health difficulties may be having on you as a student. We can talk through the support needs you feel you may have, and address these directly or through referral to other specialists. The Team can offer one-to-one support to individual students to develop an understanding of their mental health and in forming coping strategies.

The Team can also provide indirect support, such as liaising with other relevant services internal and external to the University to ensure that all appropriate services are used effectively in supporting you in achieving your academic potential.

The Team offer advice and information about a wide range of issues and factors related to promoting positive mental health and well-being.
