It's important to look after yourself at uni, whether that's making time to see your GP, taking some time out to relax or even just making sure you've got the right tools for the job - if you know what we mean! ;)

Mental Health affects us all. We all have times when we feel down, stressed, or unable to manage. These feelings often pass, but sometimes they are hard to cope with and you might feel you need extra support.
If you are concerned about your mental health it is important to speak to your GP, and if you're worried about how to start the conversation with them, check out these useful links on the University's webpages.
If you think that your mental health is impacting on your ability to study and cope with life at university then you should make an appointment to speak to the University Wellbeing Team. They offer a free and confidential service aimed at providing you with information, practical and therapeutic support to help you manage any difficulties you are experiencing. You can find out more about what the team does and how to get in touch with them here.
If your mental health is having a negative impact on your studies then you can contact the SU Advice Service for information on applying for Extenuating Circumstances. See here for more info.
