Mental health

A person’s mental health can range from disabling illness to a sense of well-being and fulfilment. The mental health problems that arise at work are most often of a mild or moderate nature and severe mental illness is rare.

The University is committed to positively promoting mental well-being and helping prevent mental health problems occurring such as stress, anxiety and depression. We also offer support for those with a defined mental illness.

Our policies and procedures are designed to ensure that all staff and students who experience mental health difficulties are treated fairly, sensitively and with respect. We endeavour to offer you the support you need to deal with your particular situation.

Our guidance also provides consistent, fair and effective procedures to monitor the mental well-being of staff and students, and take action to deal with any issues that arise out of that monitoring.
