This week marks Mental Health Awareness Week, so we thought we should point you in the direction of some places on and off campus where you can find wellbeing and mental health support.
The College’s Wellbeing team provide drop-in sessions Monday-Thursday 2.30-3.30pm and Friday 9.30-10.30am in the Student Centre, which you’ll find in RHB 123.
