As it’s mental health awareness week we thought it would be good to do a quick run down of all the support available at QMUL.
Please do get in touch with these services if you need support. If you’re confused about which ones why not speak to a Mental Health First Aider.
Our advice and counselling service runs 1-2-1 counseling, group sessions, informal drop-in advice, information on other organisations.
Queen Mary has just subscribed to online support service Big White Wall. It’s available for students and staff 24/7 and there are trained professionals on the platform who can help.
If you have a mental health condition, it is important that you register with a doctor so you can access the necessary support and medicine you may need. In order to ensure that you access all the support you need during your studies, please also make an appointment (preferably before the start of your studies) with the Mental Health Coordinator to discuss what can be put in place for you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7882 2756.
If you’re in crisis or just need to know where to go next please come and talk to trained Mental Health First Aiders. In the School of English and Drama there are lots of us including Rupert Dannreuther and Suzi Lewis in the School office.
On site we have a medical centre for students if you’re diagnosed with a mental health disorder or think you should be diagnosed.
