Northumbria Students’ Union recognises Student Mental Health as a priority, and we have listened to your feedback. As a result, we have worked with University senior leadership in order to address your feedback.
We are happy to announce three key improvements that will be on offer within the Universities Mental Health service:
- New telephone appointments
- Appointments outside of 9-5 for those of you that can’t make it in.
- Online support both through new services such as ‘Spill’ which gives access to counsellors for message based therapy through an app and skype appointments
Ryan Bush, Vice President Welfare at Northumbria Students’ Union commented: “We’ve been championing the need for extra support for student mental health, so I’m really delighted that this is now in place.
“Through discussions with the University we were able to identify some key things that would help, such as extra counselling sessions outside of class times and more online guidance. I’m confident that students will approve of these additional services allowing them to get the support they want.”
