Health and wellbeing
The university offers confidential support and advice in a number of ways:
Information on how to access services provided by NHS and Social Services
Support for disabled students including some aspects of mental health
Counselling and therapy service
Information for staff and students
Read our Statement of Service. The Psychological Wellbeing Service have produced a short leaflet on how to respond to a student in emotional distress or a mental health crisis. Although primarily aimed as a guide for staff, this could also be useful to students who may be concerned about a friend or peer. Please note, staff who are having problems with health, mental health or wellbeing should contact Occupational Health.
