Disability, Mental Health and Wellbeing Mentoring Group

Tuesday 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th February 2024

G01 SPP Committee Room 2, Tavistock Square (31)

The Disability, Mental Health and Wellbeing team in Student Support and Wellbeing will be hosting a Mentoring Group for students who are experiencing difficulties at university and would benefit from, or prefer, a group setting for wellbeing support.

Our wonderful mentors Anna and Sue will host the Mentoring Group every Tuesday from 12pm-1pm. This term, the sessions run from Tuesday 16th January to Tuesday 5th March 2024.

Request to join the group by email

Request to join the group on askUCL

The remit for being referred to the Mentoring Group is: 

  • You may be struggling to adjust to university life
  • Mental health problems may be impacting your studies
  • You are motivated to share your experience would benefit from a group setting for wellbeing support
  • You do not have a mental health diagnosis and are ineligible for disability support (however, we will consider students with a mental health condition if a group setting will be beneficial for you)

To get the most out of the group, referrals will close once the group reaches its second meeting (Tuesday 30th January). This is so the group can get to know each other and there isn't a sense of constant change. If you would like to join after the group has closed, you will be added to the waiting list and signed up for the next group.
