Please be aware that the University therapy and mental health team are working remotely. We will be offering telephone appointments in place of face-to-face sessions, and can receive and respond to emails and submitted self-referral forms.
All students currently on our waiting list are being contacted to offer them the option to have telephone appointments.
If you would like an appointment please complete our online self-referral form. If you have any difficulties with the online link, please use the Word version of the form, which you can find on the self-referral form Portal page.
Mental health support
Due to the limited support we are able to deliver as a service, our mental health adviser’s role will be restricted to liaison, advocacy and signposting support. In order to ensure students that are not already working with the mental health adviser are still accessing the appropriate level of support available to them, we are introducing a triage service in the form of a 'call back request'.
Students who want to have contact with the mental health adviser need to FULLY complete the call back request form and submit this to firstname.lastname@example.org. Their call back request form will be assessed in regards to priority and students will receive a call back during the 'call back service' set timings - this will run for one hour every day between 2pm and 3pm.
Call back request form
