Mental health support

Important update for students who need counselling and mental health support

Counselling and Mental Health continue to offer all their services online, however, we now have capacity to start offering some COVID Safe face to face appointments where appropriate.

Find out more about our online support

With effect from Monday 26 April we are launching a “virtual” Mental Health drop in, Monday - Friday between 11:30 am and 13:30 pm.

The drop in gives you a chance to have a quick 10-15 minute chat with a Mental Health Advisor without having to book an appointment in advance. During this time we can help you come up with an ongoing plan.

If you would like to attend the drop in then please contact the Student Services Hub on 01752 587 676 or emailing them at studentservices@plymouth.ac.uk and they will send you all the information need along with a Zoom link.

At the mental health support service we work alongside you to offer support if your mental health is having a serious impact on your life at University. We offer advice if you are concerned about your own or someone else's mental health.

We provide personalised input to help you get the most out of your University experience by linking in with appropriate services both within the University and external agencies. 

Come and have a chat to us if you have a previous mental health diagnosis or have started to experience symptoms that are impacting on your ability to engage in University life.
