Our advisors are not wellbeing professionals, but they can offer you guidance and support on wellbeing matters. Unless you would prefer to speak to someone independent from the University, we would always recommend you use the University’s Wellbeing services.
If you need some guidance in finding the right wellbeing service or in making that first point of contact with them, then we’re here for you. We are happy to refer you to suitable services or to offer you moral support while you make that first call. We know that when we are overwhelmed, we all need a helping hand.
We will not share information about you with the University without your consent. The University’s Wellbeing services also follow strict confidentiality procedures. However, if you would prefer to use an external service, we can help you look for a suitable alternative.
The University offers a wide range of Wellbeing services free of charge. It is rare to have access to so much support, so we recommend you see what’s on offer and make use of it if necessary.
