One in four people experience some sort of mental health difficulty in their life, particularity during stressful times such as starting university or moving away from home. If you feel that you may be experiencing some difficulties with your mental health or have been given a formal diagnosis then the Mental Health Service may be able to help you.
If you decide that you would like to talk to someone specifically about you mental health and how it is affecting you at the University, why not make an appointment with the Mental Health Support Team.
Early discussion of the support available to you is ideal but we recognise that disclosure may be difficult. Also your support needs may change over time. We are here to provide support at any point during your time at the University of Bedfordshire. All information about students who access the service is treated in a confidential manner.
If you decide that you would like to talk to someone specifically about you mental health and how it is affecting you at the University, please contact the Mental Health Support Team. We will send you a pre assessment form to complete, prior to offering an appointment, to give us an indication of your situation and support needs.
The service is available on the Luton and Bedford campuses. Telephone support can be offered on the Aylesbury and Milton Keynes campuses. You can access support by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are unsure if you need this service or if you have a question please email us at email@example.com and we can advise.
We want to ensure that everyone has fair access to the service. Short notice cancellations and non-attendance have an impact on students who may be waiting for an appointment by lengthening the time they wait to see an advisor.
You have a responsibility to keep appointments you make with mental health support. It is respectful to let us know you can’t keep an appointment or do not wish to continue your appointments.
What should I do if I need to cancel an appointment?
We do understand that in certain circumstances, you may be unable to let us know in advance. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are experiencing any difficulties keeping your appointments.
