Statement on Student Welfare and the Support Available

The Students’ Union are deeply saddened to hear of the death of one of our students earlier this week. We would like to offer our condolences and sympathies to family and friends during this difficult time.

We would also like to remind people to please respect the privacy of all those involved.

We believe it is important for us to take this moment to remind our students of the variety of help that is available to them:

  • The Wellbeing Service is open 5 days a week. If you feel like you need to speak to someone, the service offers counselling and mental health support.
  • You can also contact The Samaritans, who provide free and confidential support.
  • Off The Record are based in the city centre, and provide support for young people under the age of 25.
  • The Students’ Union Advice Centre provides free, confidential, friendly and non-judgemental advice.
  • If you are worried about a friend, please reach out to them. Papyrus, the prevention of young suicide charity, offers help and guidance on how to do this.
  • If you are finding your exams hard to cope with, speak to a Student Adviser who can talk to you about the support that is available.

Finally, always remember there is hope and help out there. If you feel like you need to talk to someone please make sure you reach out.
