Plus Icon Worried about someone else?

Are you worried about another student and not sure what to do?

It can be extremely stressful and anxiety provoking if you are worried about another student's welfare, particularly if their behaviour is putting themselves or others at risk. The Student Wellbeing Team is here to help, and you are welcome to register to discuss any concerns you have.

You can talk to the Student Wellbeing Team or another member of staff without giving specific information about a fellow student. You don't have to give their name if you don't feel comfortable. Talking to someone may help you see a way forward.

Please remember that the wellbeing of other students is not your responsibility, no matter that it may feel that way. Talking to someone else about your concerns may be the first step to getting them the help they need.

If your friend's behaviour is putting them or others at risk DO NOT KEEP THE INFORMATION TO YOURSELF. There may need to be some action taken.

If you believe that another student is at immediate risk of self harm or suicide you should call 999 and ask for an ambulance. The student will be assessed and if necessary taken to hospital.

You might find this Rethink guide helpful to read. It contains further useful information about how you can help and support someone experiencing mental distress.

Plus Icon Confidentiality

The information you provide is held confidentially by the Student Wellbeing Team. That means that we will not discuss any information you give us outside of the Student Wellbeing Team except in the following circumstances:

  • You give us your permission (it may be beneficial to contact other staff within our University if your wellbeing is affecting your study)
  • We have reason to believe that you or others are at risk of serious harm
  • Where there is a legal requirement to provide the information
  • Where a member of the Student Wellbeing Team believes that you are not in a position to take responsibility for your safety

We will discuss confidentiality at your first appointment. For more information access our Student Wellbeing Agreement.
