Morley’s In-House Wellbeing Service
Are you feeling anxious, stressed or overwhelmed?
Are there things going on at college, or at home that you’d like to talk to someone about?
If so, please get in touch with the Wellbeing Team. The team offers a wide range of interventions, and the opportunity to talk in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space.
If you would like to access wellbeing support, you can refer yourself or ask one of your tutors to make a referral for you.
Once the team receive your referral form one of them will get in touch for an initial chat and to arrange a time to meet for a needs assessment.
Your needs assessment will help the team decide what support is most appropriate for you. This could be a couple of sessions to talk through an issue, or ongoing support. Everything we do is about helping you best achieve your potential in your studies.
If the team can’t help you directly, they will recommend services which will be of help. This support might be internal such as via the Additional Learning Support Team, Student Finance or the College Counsellor, or external to the college, such as via your local talking therapies (e.g., Community Living Well or Talking Lambeth), your GP, your local authority, or a specialist support organisation/service. The team can help you contact different organisations, and where applicable, make a referral on your behalf or act as a short-term advocate.
Sessions can take place face to face , via Teams or telephone – whichever way suits you.
The Mental Health and Wellbeing Service is open
Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm during term time.
The Wellbeing Team isn’t a crisis response team. If you are in immediate crisis or are in danger, please call 999 or go to your nearest A&E. You can also contact the safeguarding team via email@example.com
