Our wellbeing service

COVID-19 update: The university is still providing a range of services to support students, but there may be changes to some of these services because our staff are working remotely.


One in four people will experience a mental health issue over the course of a year, whether it’s a temporary reaction to a painful event or an ongoing condition.

Mental health issues include depression; anxiety disorders including panic disorder, OCD and PTSD; bi-polar disorder; schizophrenia and psychosis; drug and alcohol problems; and eating disorders.

Make an appointment

Please make an appointment with a learning support coordinator as soon as possible if your mental health difficulties affect your ability to study, even if your condition fluctuates.
