What do we do?

  • Provide information about mental health issues, and the services and support which might be available.
  • Assess mental health needs and help to avert or manage crisis situations.
  • Signpost students to other services, when appropriate, such as GP, Student Counselling Service, or Community Mental Health Team.
  • Help to establish academic and other support needs and work with departments and other service providers to put a learning support plan in place.
  • Advise on strategies to make studying more manageable, depending upon the particular support needs and the barriers faced by individual students.
  • In conjunction with the Bangor Access Centre, assist students who may be eligible to apply for Disabled Students Allowance from their funding body, and arrange for funded support to be put in place.

We offer professional mental health support, but it is not our role to provide ongoing therapy or counselling. If you feel you would benefit from seeing a Counsellor, please follow this link to the University’s Student Counselling Service.

Who are we?

Cheryl, Fiona and Fiona are all registered with a Professional Body (see individual profiles for details). They are also active participants in the University Mental Health Advisers Network, which aims to share good practice and influence developments across the sector.
