Mental Health and Wellbeing

The University of Roehampton Support Services are practical and passionate with a student focused mentality. The work they do is incredible and the impact more so: it can be life-changing for students. I would not be where I am without them. ~Tobias, Roehampton student featured in the video above

Mental health impacts all of us. Supporting the mental health and wellbeing of our students is a priority at Roehampton. However there has been an increase in mental health disclosures in recent years which has placed a demand on support services already funded by the University.

This fund will support our investment to build more consulting rooms and will enable the Wellbeing team to run a greater range of early intervention and prevention activities. With your help we can accommodate three more counsellors, which would enable at least 70 more student appointments per week.

I am here today because of the commitment and support from Student Support Services. As soon as my Student Wellbeing Officer referred me to Disability Services for my anxiety and depression, adjustments were put in my place for my studies; a referral to the Good Health Programme was made to Sport Roehampton; and I was supported by a mentor and a counsellor. I will be forever grateful for all the help I have and still do receive because of the services provided at Roehampton. ~Megan, Roehampton student featured in the video above
