The University of Brighton is committed to supporting the health and wellbeing of all staff and students. If you feel you need support right now or are interested in building practices that will help to keep you steady further down the line, there is a wealth of resources at your fingertips.
Student Support Guidance Tutors
All schools have Student Support Guidance Tutors (SSGTs) who you can reach out to if you are struggling. SSGTs offer guidance and support on a range of issues such as stress, anxiety, study difficulties and loneliness. SSGTs can also refer you on to specialist services within the university. These include access to the counselling provision. In the first instance, whether you need advice, a sounding board or more tailored, specialist support, please contact your SSGT. They will then be able to assess your needs and work out how best to support you.
If you are going through a tough time you can now access free online support with Togetherall. Whether you’re struggling to sleep, feeling low, stressed or unable to cope, Togetherall can help you get support, take control and feel better.
You will have access to a 24/7 online community and professional support from trained counsellors. Togetherall provides a safe space online to get things off your chest, explore your feelings, get creative and learn how to self-manage your mental health and wellbeing.
