The role of the Mental Health Adviser is to support students who may be experiencing emotional or psychological distress or personal difficulties. The Mental Health Adviser will be able to co-ordinate support for students with mental health difficulties and act as a point of contact for the duration of your studies.
Niall works alongside the disability service, counselling service and the Student Wellbeing Adviser, but it is not his role to be a counsellor. He will be able to support and encourage you to consider your rights and think about any additional resources which may help you to access education.
Each case will be viewed independently and will vary according to the students’ needs. As well as encouraging you to think about adjustments and resources, Niall will be able to support you by providing interventions, offering advice and guidance, and signposting/referring to therapeutic and medical services when appropriate.
If you want to make an appointment with Niall, please fill in this form and specify that you are looking for mental health support. If your query is urgent please call the Student Wellbeing Service on 0141 273 1393.
