Specialist Mental Health Services For Students

We feel that it is vital that Students have robust Mental Health services to support them whilst studying.  At the University Medical Centre we provide a student only specialist Mental Health Service called the Primary Care Student Mental Health Specialist Service 

 

Primary Care Student Mental Health Specialist Service  

This service is for students with new or existing mental health problems who may need some short term support to help them return to their usual day to day routine and studies. 

The service is run by an experienced team of Nurses and Occupational Therapists with access to a Psychiatrist's advice and guidance.  They are able to offer an assessment and support and potentially signpost you for further support from another specialist organisation. For information on how to access the service please see the Service Leaflet.
