Mental Health & Wellbeing
- The Counselling Service offers short term, focussed blocks of therapy, subject to assessment. Dependant on demand, the waiting times can vary but tend to be between 2 and 10 weeks from assessment to ongoing counselling (compared with 3-9 months for NHS services). The service also offers single session consultations to allow students a listening ear on specific issues. The Counselling service is not a crisis service, it is designed to support those with mild to moderate need to manage their mental health and build strategies that will help them to successfully complete their course of study. A student can book themselves in via the website.
- Disability Services: Students who have a mental health diagnosis may be eligible for support via the Disability Service. They can be matched with a mental health advisor who works with them regularly throughout the academic year, to help them manage their condition alongside the demands of their course. This tends to be most suitable for those with significant or long-term mental health difficulties.
