About the Mental Health Pathway

How do I access support from the Mental Health Team?
Mental Health Support
Support from the Mental Health Team can be accessed via the Wellbeing Drop-Ins. If something is affecting your emotional or mental health, you can speak to a member of the wellbeing team to book a 20 minute drop-in. This is a short conversation where you will be able to outline your concerns to a practitioner and discuss best next steps including whether support from the Mental Health Team would be helpful. If you have any queries and would like to speak to a member of staff in the team before attending a drop in appointment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on 01392 724381
Individual Learning Plan
The University of Exeter supports students experiencing mental health difficulties to access their learning and wider University experience. Our AccessAbility and Mental Health teams can meet with students to discuss the issues they are experiencing as a result of their mental health difficulties, and to consider possible reasonable adjustments as part of an Individual Learning Plan (ILP). To request an appointment for an ILP or to review your current disability support, please complete our online booking request form.
We offer a number of ‘on the day' drop-ins bookable daily between 9.15-3.30pm, Monday – Friday. These can be confirmed on the day be speaking to a member of the Wellbeing reception team.
These are available on a first come, first served basis.
You will be able to talk to a qualified wellbeing practitioner who will offer initial advice, support and (if relevant) an onward referral. The drop-in is usually up to 20 minutes and we ask students to complete a short form before the start of their consultation to help the practitioner understand what might be helpful for you.
Drop-in sessions are currently being run in person at Reed Mews Wellbeing Centre. You can either come along to the Reed Mews Wellbeing Centre reception to request a session or call 01392 724381 to confirm a time to attend. If all our drop-in consulations are booked or you are unable to attend that day, you can still book an online initial wellbeing appointment at a time that’s convenient to you. There is also 24/7 support available via Togetherall which can help if you're feeling stressed, anxious or low.
