Wellbeing at Morley
Do you feel you might need some support with your mental health or would like to improve your wellbeing? Morley College London has a well-established network of support on offer to our learners.
Morley’s In-House Wellbeing Service
You may feel stressed or anxious, overwhelmed or just need someone to talk to? Our in-house dedicated Student Mental Health & Wellbeing Service offers a wide range of interventions such as problem-solving and resilience-building exercises, you will be guided through these techniques, and free to talk in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space.
We take a holistic approach to supporting our learners to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Delivered by our highly experienced Mental Health and Wellbeing Officers based at the North Kensington and Chelsea centres you will find support for any issues that you might be experiencing in your personal or college life.
These sessions take place face to face or via video conferencing calls, telephone, email or text message, communicating whichever way suits you. We can also recommend services which might also be of help internal or external to the college. Don’t forget we are here to help and will offer you a warm welcome.
If you would like to access wellbeing support, you can refer yourself, or a tutor or member of staff can make a referral for you via email@example.com.
The Wellbeing Service operates Monday to Thursday 9-5 term time plus.
If you are a learner on Level 3 and above programmes, you can also be referred for short-term, crisis counselling, if you have mild to moderate anxiety, depression and/or have suffered a bereavement.
To access this support contact firstname.lastname@example.org At the end of these sessions the counsellor may discuss with you what further support you might need via your GP, Community Mental Health Team or a specialist agency in the community.
The College is supported by a Youth Services Mental Health Adviser from MIND. If you are 16-25 years old you can access MIND’s free and confidential MIND Wellbeing Advice Service at the College. The MIND advice service is not a counselling service but helps teach students practical coping strategies for managing their mental health and wellbeing through a mixture of activities, discussion and helpful resources.
MIND can help if you are experiencing low mood or anxiety, need help with managing stress, are finding coping with student life difficult, are having difficulties in managing your emotions, are experiencing problems with sleeping or are worried about exams.
To access support from MIND contact email@example.com in the first instance.
MIND also offers workshops so you may see their Youth Services Mental Health Adviser in class from time to time.
