Drop-In

A daily drop-in service gives you the opportunity to be seen by an on-duty advisor who will be able to provide you with information.

The Student Mental Health and Wellbeing Service consists of the three following service providers, Student Counselling Centre (SCC), Mental Health Team (MHT) and Leeds Student Medical Practice (LSMP) Mental Health Workers.

The aim of the Student Mental Health and Wellbeing Service is to create a unified entry point to all three of the services and thus prevent students feeling as though they are passed between services and having to repeatedly explain their situation. Staff at the drop-in sessions will provide information about sources of support within and outside the University and where appropriate make a referral to one of the Student Mental Health and Wellbeing Service providers. 

The service is for people seeking information but it is not an emergency service. Please note that we cannot provide a letter about mitigating circumstances just from a drop-in session.
