Disclosure of mental health difficulties


Why tell the University about mental health difficulties?

You may be eligible for additional support or reasonable adjustments which the University can help you to access.
This is optional support and you can decide if you would like to engage with it or not.

It may be appropriate for you have reasonable adjustments within your course. These are typically minor changes that help reduce the impact that your mental health difficulties may produce.



The only time we pass on information without a student’s consent is when the student may be a risk to themselves or other people.


Some reassurance

Information about your mental health needs will not be shared with others unless you are happy for this to happen and it is helpful to you.
