Can you help us help others?

The Student Counselling Service is planning to make a number of short videos this semester showing how students have dealt successfully in the past with common problems which can affect their participation at university.

The idea behind this initiative, which is aided by the Special Projects Fund, is to highlight that young people can and do recover and learn from these life challenges. We hope that students' shared experiences will inspire and motivate others to take steps to mind their mental health. The videos will be posted on the service's webpage and on the college Blackboard network.

Please contact the service at (091) 494196 or email if you'd like to take part in this exciting new initiative.
