Our dedicated Mental Health Advisors works with students who have a possible or actual mental health diagnosis, or who might experience emotional or psychological distress or personal difficulties during their time at university.
- Discuss a student’s mental health and check in with them around their wellbeing
- Support students to create a plan to help address their mental health needs
- Possibly support students throughout their time at St Mary’s, if mental health concerns warrant this approach
- Work with colleagues in the University to promote the wellbeing of students and to support the completion of their degree
- Support the connection of students with primary and secondary services, including GPs, Mental Health professionals and Eating Disorder Specialists - either within the student's home town or with the Community Teams who operate within the University vicinity
- Help students apply for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA)
