Mental health support - is this service for me?

Who is the service for? 

As part of the wider Student Wellbeing Services, we will work with you to enable you to find the most appropriate support both inside and outside of the University. If you are already linked in with local services, we can still support you in accessing services within the University.

If you are experiencing severe and long term mental health difficulties, are having a mental health crisis, or you feel your mental health is having a negative impact on university life, come and talk to us. 

We can also support you if you have any previous mental health diagnosis. We will complete an assessment, possibly offer advice, signposting and referrals to other services.
