Mental health support is integrated into all of our services. In addition to the counsellors, we have mental health advisors and mentors who support students with mental health difficulties who are also struggling academically. These services include:

  • support in managing specific mental health conditions
  • co-ordinating crisis situations if and when they occur
  • general advice on issues related to mental health and wellbeing
  • help to meet the needs of studying with a mental health difficulty
  • identifying reasonable adjustments
  • sessions to help you develop skills to manage mental health conditions while being a student
  • assistance referring to, liaising and coordinating with NHS and other external services
  • support in accessing other University departments such as academic schools, occupational health and housing services.
I have a mental health mentor, who encourages and supports me with my mental health. This has been a tremendous support especially in the beginning when I questioned whether I had the ability and the confidence to do a Masters degree.
