Mental Health

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. They can both change throughout our lives and in response to external factors. The Department of Chemistry is supportive not only of helping staff and students when they feel unwell, but also of helping everyone to develop positive wellbeing and emotional health. 




Mental Health Resources Toolkit (PDF  , 358kb) is available for supervisors to help guide students to different sources of support.

Mental health contacts

The Department of Chemistry has a number of contacts who have been mental health first aid trained and can be approached by staff and students if they need support with mental health issues. The current list of contacts is available on our quick link list.
In addition the University has launched 'Mental Health First Contact' (MHFC) for staff, which is an in-house network of trained members of staff who are a first point of contact if you are experiencing emotional or psychological distress. You can contact any of the members direct and don't have to be based in the same department.
