Anyone can experience thoughts and feelings that are distressing or affect their ability to concentrate on their work/studies: anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, bereavement, issues of sexuality, relationship difficulties, family conflict, homesickness, and problems arising from studies. Mental health difficulties manifest across a broad continuum, from mild anxiety or discomfort that may be a natural response, to a challenging event, through to extreme mental illness.
Wellbeing is defined as the emotional, mental, spiritual, social and physical well-being of students, supported to ensure that they have the best opportunity to engage and succeed at University and beyond. Wellbeing is a key measure of success, something for us to aim for, now and for the future.
We are a team of Health Professionals who offer an accessible and supportive service for all students experiencing emotional and mental health difficulties which are impacting upon their studies and/or daily lives.
Our role is to enable you to overcome barriers in order to achieve your potential.
What kind of difficulties do students bring?
Sometimes there isn't a specific problem and you may just want to talk. We are here to support you, provide time for you and help create a positive future.
