Mental health

The college is committed in supporting students, apprentices and staff with their mental health and well-being. We provide face to face sessions via our counselling and safeguarding team. We offer confidential and non-judgemental emotional support. Our staff are trained and will create a safe and welcoming environment where you can talk about your concerns that are affecting your emotional wellbeing.

We offer one-to-one support and where appropriate with your consent refer to external agencies that may be equipped to provide more specialist support.

Our safeguarding team can be contacted Monday to Friday (term time only)

When the college is closed and if you are in crisis, you need to contact an emergency service or a crisis support service listed below. Unless it says otherwise, these are open 24 hours a day, every day:

  • 999 – You can always telephone 999 in an emergency.
  • Hospital – You can make your way to any hospital which has an Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department. It might help to ask someone to accompany you. Find your nearest Accident & Emergency Service.
  • Samaritans – You can telephone Samaritans 24 hours a day on 116 123 from your mobile or landline or send an email You can find out if you have a local Samaritans branch here.
  • Your GP/medical practice – Contact the medical practice at which you are registered and ask for an urgent appointment.
  • Local crisis support service – You can find your local crisis support services by visiting the NHS page.
  • Other organisations, including PAPYRUS and Student Minds offer support and helpful resources.

Do not forget the importance of talking to someone who you trust. Let family or friends know what’s going on as they may be able to offer support. There’s no right or wrong way to talk about your feelings – starting the conversation is what’s important.

Here are 10 tips from the NHS to help manage covid-19 related anxiety:


Our aim is to keep the support we offer to you confidential. This means that we won’t talk about you to other people outside of the college team.

It is important that you know if we are worried about you and think that you are at risk of danger, we will discuss with you about the need for us to share our concerns with other relevant external agencies. We will only do this if we believe that you are at risk of significant harm.

Before we share any information with external agencies, we will inform you and explain our decision.
