Wellbeing & Support

Business School Wellbeing Wednesday Update

Each Wednesday (during term time) we will send you an email highlighting wellbeing support that is available to Business School students within the School and from across the university.  As well as providing a reminder about the support available each week, we will also shine a spotlight on a different university support service.

Get in touch

Our Business School Wellbeing Advisor Emer McConnell, is available via email each Wednesday between 10.00-11.00 in case you have any questions about Wellbeing support or services available.  If you want an informal chat, please email Emer at emer.mcconnell@ncl.ac.uk or call her on Teams (Emer McConnell) and she will be able to signpost you to what support is available.

Other Sources of Support

Outside of Emer’s contact time each Wednesday, you can also get in touch with a range of Wellbeing Support services. Our Student and Staff Wellbeing Service work with local and national organisations to support you and help you maximise your academic potential and gain the most from your time here at Newcastle.

Here at the Business School, we have two specialist advisors to help support you. You can find out more about the support they can offer via the Business School Undergraduate/Postgraduate Canvas Communities.

Student Support Plans

Students who have an on-going mental health condition or disability can access a Student Support Plan: specialistlearning@ncl.ac.uk or disabilityadvisor@ncl.ac.uk

Mental Health Advisor

If you feel you may require support with a mental health issue, you can request an individual assessment appointment: mentalhealthadvisor@ncl.ac.uk.

Drop-In Support

For situations where you do not need a regular appointment but may want to speak to someone about an issue impacting upon your health and wellbeing please contact:sws.therapyappointments@ncl.ac.uk.

This service allows you to meet with our Therapist, Lisa to discuss an issue that may be affecting you but where you don’t feel you need a more regular appointment and some advice may help.

TalkCampus – 24/7 help

We have launched a new mental health support network called TalkCampus. It’s a free to download app where you can talk with other students from around the world if you’re struggling and worried about your mental health.

Your student email address will give you free access, just download TalkCampus from this site or directly from the app stores. Further information on how to set up TalkCampus can be found in this TalkCampus guide

TalkCampus 24/7 is based around peer support; you can use it if you need some help.  The platform is safe and moderated, and is designed as a place where you can just be yourself and talk about how you’re really feeling. Student life can be tough especially during these Covid-19 times. This is your community which enables you to connect with fellow students around the world any time of day or night and get support for whatever’s on your mind. TalkCampus 24/7 isn’t a replacement for counselling or professional support from your GP however it is a great place to start talking and to make sure that however you’re feeling right now you’re not alone.
