I am writing an article scrutinizing whether or not universities are doing enough to support their students with mental health or well-being issues. It would be really helpful to have some first-hand accounts from students of their experiences (good or bad) at accessing the mental health support services at their university. You can be totally anonymous, or as vague as you like; I am most interested in how appropriately you felt the university dealt with your issues, and what you think they could have done to improve their service.

University of Bath is really good with mental health. They offer free counselling services and also have a drop in well being team. The wellbeing team are amazing and you can just get a drop in 20 minute appointment most days all day. They can book longer sessions with you and even send emails and can speak to academics on your behalf. The university also gives students peer mentors, personal tutors and a head of year who are really helpful. The SU also offers advice and representation. Extensions and mitigting circumstances can also be applied for and are relatively straightforward. Generally the University and The SU are very helpful when it comes to mental health.

I have just completed my degree and was signed up with Disability Services for various reasons, among them PTSD. Not only did my university help me to get my diagnosis, they also wrote to my GP insisting that my mental health was impacting on my studying.
My university is a ‘new’ university. I read a lot on here about prestigious universities where although they are up there in academia, their mental health support is abysmal or just non-existent.

I'm trying to access colleges counseling and nursing provision and they told me since I used to access NHS Cahms service that they need to be sent letter from them regarding as proof that I am not in receipt so there is no conflict of interest.

That's the difficulty I'm getting into trying to access their services.
