Mental Health

If you are worried about your health – or that of a fellow student – come along for a confidential chat.

We all have times when we feel stressed, anxious and overwhelmed. These feelings are normal and usually pass quite quickly, but you may need some extra support to get you through tough times. That’s what Mike, our mental health and welfare advisor, is here for. Don’t suffer in silence – talking about how you’re feeling with a trained advisor can help with lots of different symptoms, including:

  • Low mood
  • Lack of emotions
  • Loss of interest in life and others
  • Withdrawing
  • Lack of confidence
  • Low self-esteem
  • Confused
  • Erratic or unusual behaviour
  • Difficulty in making decisions
  • Suspicious of others
  • Inappropriate behaviour
  • Memory impairment
  • Poor concentration
  • Feeling tired and exhausted
  • Trouble sleeping
  • No appetite
  • Frightened and anxious constantly
