If you've been using mental health services before you come to university or develop a diagnosed complex mental health condition then it’s a good idea to let the University know as soon as possible.
Our Additional Support and Disability Advice Centre can provide advice about all the extra support and ‘reasonable adjustments’ available. The Student Wellbeing Service can also help you access appropriate NHS mental health services, where relevant. You could also request a place on the weekly Being You course which focuses on skills for managing life as a student alongside a mental health condition.
