The Wellbeing Service is part of Student Services.
What is the Wellbeing Service?
In broad terms our remit is to provide a range of services that cultivate student wellbeing by:-
- Directly helping students to develop the means and inner resources to promote their own wellbeing whilst studying at Swansea University through a range of therapeutic approaches
- Working directly with students where their individuality and circumstances presents them with challenges in the academic world where additional and/or tailored learning support is required
- Offering formal and informal advice and support to staff within the academic and learning environments of the organisation that further embed the student wellbeing agenda
- We connect with the wider community in collaboration with the student to additional support they may wish to access
Specifically, the range of services we offer are set out on this web page. They are broken into sections so you can see the broad range of what we offer, when we offer it, how the service is accessed and how some services are funded.
Our service is not an emergency or statutory mental health service. If such services are required, contact needs to be made via your GP or other appropriate referral routes before approaching our service.
No one can ‘make’ you use our service. Our service is based on self-referral and student autonomy. You can choose to stop using our services at any time.
Our services are free of charge and are confidential (see confidentiality policy) to all enrolled students. We are part of Inclusive Student Support Services but access to our service is separate in order to protect confidentiality.
We have male and female staff available.
Whatever service we offer, our contact with students is based on respect for choice and individuality. We do not judge or stigmatise.
