Looking after yourself
We realise that this is a stressful time for everyone and that it can be hard to stay positive and motivated in this situation. Please have a look at the main University support options below:
- Listening Service - If ever you just wanted to chat to someone from the University about how you’re feeling, you can access a non-judgmental, confidential Listening Service run by Student Services via phone or online video meeting. They will be running 1-2-1 appointments up to and including 23rd December 2020, and will resume from 5th January.
- Togetherall - Togetherall is a digital mental health service freely available at togetherall.com. Using your University email address, you can anonymously access support 24/7 with trained clinicians online at all times, as well as a range of helpful tools and resources. It is a safe place online to get things off your chest, have conversations, express yourself creatively and learn how to manage your mental health.
- Wellbeing Service - The University has a dedicated mental health support service called the Wellbeing Service. You can fill in a Wellbeing Support Request Form so you can be sent more specific resources or be referred to the best service for your query. Where appropriate, Wellbeing will offer short advice and guidance appointments available via telephone or Zoom. These appointments are not mental health or counselling sessions but can offer support, information and signposting. They also have a Self-Help Resources page which includes a list of useful apps and information.
- Help in a Crisis – The University has a Help in a Crisis advice page which directs to students to where they can go for immediate help if they are in crisis.
