MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
If you’re already seeking support for mental health difficulties outside of College, we can work with you and anyone involved, in maintaining your mental health to support your studies and help you to progress towards your goals.
If you aren’t already accessing support for your mental health, but feel this would be beneficial, we can support you and help you to access services as appropriate.
The College also has a team of mental health first aiders who are trained to support with mental health related needs and can be utilised when experiencing challenges on site.
COLLEGE THERAPY DOGS
The College has therapy dogs on site who are on hand to bring a smile to your face and support positive mental health and wellbeing when needed.
Loughborough College has introduced Mylie - a furry, four-legged member of staff - to support the college community's mental health and wellbeing. When fully trained, Mylie will be a regular on campus and will be used mainly to support students.
DROP IN SERVICES
The College offers a range of drop in related services. This includes a mental health drop in for students who feel they need mental health related support on the same day, as well as a HE drop in service for more general welfare and wellbeing related needs.
COLLEGE COUNSELLING SERVICE
Students who feel they would benefit from a face to face counselling service can access this through our college counsellor. The counsellor offers 6 face-to-face sessions which students can be referred for. Referrals can be made via the HE Welfare Coordinator.
Bespoke for higher education students is our partnership with HE Health Assured, who deliver a free 24 hour a day, 365 day a year confidential helpline, online portal and App service. HE Health Assured provide a range of advice, information and support services, as well as offering a confidential counselling service.
