Mental Health & Wellness Support


Trained support network

Reach out to the Peer Supporters, Welfare VPs, Liberation Officers or Junior Deans, any of them can provide a listening ear and advice on where to get the support you most need. Otherwise supportive resources such as organisations, podcasts, books and apps can be found here or you can make use of any to the following services:


University Counselling Service by appointment
