Improving Student Mental Health through Partnerships project
A key aim of the project is to explore how to improve students access to appropriate mental health services. Through our partnership with Mersey Care NHS, we are pleased to launch new, on campus services.
The Improving Student Mental Health project has been developed with you in mind working with the Liverpool Guild of Students and LJMU Student Union. Your input and feedback is key to the project being successful and so we welcome all thoughts and suggestions. If you would like to share these with us please do not hesitate to contact us.
We also have a small team of student content creators working on this project. You can find out more about the team and what they do below.
We have launched two new services:
U-COPE: Self-Harm Service is a new service designed for those who have recently self-harmed or those who struggle with self-harming currently. The service consists of six one-to-one sessions and the initial appointment will include an assessment of your mental health. Leading up to your final sessions, your practitioner will work with you to develop a Staying well plan to help you manage your self-harm.
U-CAN: Psycho-Social Education Groups is a six week long skills group aimed to help you develop skills that can positively impact how you manage your mental health. The weekly sessions will provide practical tools and skills to help you improve your levels of stress, anxiety and persistent low mood.
To access either of these services, please contact the Advice and Guidance team or, if you have one, your Mental Health Advisor or Counsellor. They will then refer you to the service where an appointment will be arranged within two weeks.
