The Wellbeing Support Team aims to offer and provide support and advice to students and promote wellbeing in a range of settings and in a variety of ways.
The Wellbeing Advice Lounge is a promotional wellbeing event, run by a wellbeing adviser, in a prominent location within the departments to offer informal information, advice and wellbeing tips. The Wellbeing Advice Lounge will also be located within other parts of the university including the library.
This is an hour-long session, facilitated by one of the Outreach Wellbeing Advisers, aimed at supporting students to explore their wellbeing and develop strategies for managing their wellbeing more effectively.
Each faculty has a named adviser to contact for advice and information surrounding student wellbeing.
Some students benefit from a 1:1 meeting. These appointments are available throughout the academic year. Students can request an appointment via our online enquiry system.
An initial 15 minute telephone appointment will determine their most appropriate next steps and what support they will receive from the Wellbeing Team.
Students requesting support with mitigating circumstances or reasonable adjustments relating to their mental health disability will need to contact the Disability team.
