Support Mental Health and Wellbeing initiatives

Project Image

Now more than ever, we know that student success relies on the provision of accessible mental health and wellbeing services.

Recently we have seen an unprecedented demand for mental health and wellbeing support from our students. We want to continue to provide students with the services they need to make the most of their university experience and succeed in their studies.

With your support we are:

  • increasing specialist support, including the addition of two NHS Psychological Support Specialists and Mental Health and Wellbeing Therapists;
  • expanding Students’ Union support by funding more Student Counsellors and Mental Health First Aiders;
  • increasing access to our online Mental Health App, which helps students track their own mental health and offers advice; and
  • expanding our wellbeing telecentre to offer a permanent, year-round advice and resource service.

How can you help?

Your donation can make a real difference:

  • £50 provides professional counselling for one student;
  • £120 gives access to NUTHINKING, an intensive 3-month programme providing mental health coaching and nutritional advice for one student;
  • £500 will fund the Mental Health First Aider Training for a cohort of Northumbria students.
