The Mental Health and Wellbeing team and the Counselling Service, part of Wellbeing Support Services, offer a range of support services to students who experience mental health difficulties and disabilities. Disability Services signposts students to these services. Alternatively students can also make contact with these teams directly to discuss their support requirements.
The Mental Health Co-ordinators are available to meet with students who have been diagnosed with a mental health condition or who have a severe and/or enduring mental health difficulty/disability. They will work with students to:
- identify support needs
- arrange reasonable adjustments to study where students are affected by a mental health disability (please note: you will need to provide medical evidence, which we will ask you to bring to your appointment)
- provide guidance on Disabled Students' Allowances application
- arrange access to mental health mentoring for students in receipt of Disabled Students' Allowances, where mentoring has been recommended
- liaise with academic and other departments on behalf of students where agreed
- discuss strategies for managing student life
- provide information and, if needed, access to other services within the University and local mental health services.
