Reminder of Wellbeing Support Services

Get in touch: Our Business School Wellbeing Advisor Emer McConnell, is available via email each Wednesday between 10:00-11:00 in case Business School students 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 different sources of support.

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 our students. 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.
