New guide for UCL staff to support students' mental health and wellbeing

29 November 2018

The guide will help you to identify a student who might need support; talk about mental health and wellbeing; direct students to available support services; refer a student of concern; and learn what to do in a crisis situation. 

Mental Health Guide

A new guide designed to help staff broach conversations about support and direct students to the correct mental health and wellbeing services is now available.

Whether you're a Personal Tutor, Teaching Administrator or Research Supervisor, you're likely to be advising students on a broad range of issues and may be the first person they are directed to or reach out to. 

On average, three quarters of adults will experience the first symptoms of mental illness by age 24. Early intervention can make a great difference, preventing early signs from developing into severe and complex issues. Whatever your role, there are many ways in which you can help.
