This article will inform you on when you should look for mental health support.


You should look for mental health support if

  • you are very concerned about your mental health
  • you are struggling to cope with daily life and would like information and advice
  • you have a mental health difficulty and would like to talk with someone about ways to limit any impact on your life at University
  • you have an existing mental health diagnosis and would like to receive support and advice about how to stay well.

Student Wellbeing Service

The Student Wellbeing Service offers confidential help with a wide range of personal, emotional and mental health concerns and is available to every student at the University, free of charge. All kinds of students find their way to us from all over the University and for all sorts of reasons.

The service has three strands: wellbeing advice, counselling, and mental health advice. They are all linked together so when you apply you only have to approach us once – we will sort out which one is most likely to meet your needs.
