Feeling low, lonely, or stressed, having difficulties with relationships, or just feeling in need of some practical advice to help get organised?
It might be a short reassuring chat, or longer-term support that is needed, whatever the problem, we are on hand to help you through any difficulties you are experiencing. We take a holistic approach in supporting learners to better manage their own wellbeing, and interventions such as relaxation therapy, resilience building, problem-solving strategies and approaches are part of the support available. The Wellbeing service is available for all students to access support during their program of study. The aim is to provide a friendly, informal point of contact where students can share any personal concerns with an experienced wellbeing officer in a confidential, non-judgemental, and safe space. We want you to have a happy and productive learning experience at college and are here to help all students, of all ages and all courses of study. During the current Covid-19 outbreak the Wellbeing Service is still available as usual on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays each week 9am-5pm. Referrals can be made by any member of staff, and students can self-refer by contacting one of our Mental Health and Wellbeing Officers directly. Appointments are available via email, telephone, text, WhatsApp, and video call. We will resume face to face appointments alongside these options when we return to college. To make a referral or self-referral, please email us in the first instance and provide your name, a mobile phone contact and email address along with the days you are in college or receiving on-line learning. A wellbeing officer will get back to you very soon to arrange an appointment.
