Hi there,

I'm a student starting my first year at RHUL in September. I'm going to be studying Psychology and staying at Hox Park.

I suffer quite a lot with my mental health- specifically with depression and anxiety.

I was wondering if anyone has an experience of getting emotional support at the uni? Is it a good quality and easy to access? Also does anyone have any idea of how they respond to crisis situations?

It would be really nice to know if anyone else is a bit like me as I'm a bit worried about fitting in and making friends once I get to uni. is the any support groups or groups that meet up who suffer with their mental health?

Also is anyone else a first year who is staying at Hox Park?

Thanks

Hey, there is a student well-being team always ready to help.

I have actually visited them recently with some of my own worries. Even though it is still summer holiday, I was able to book an appointment for the next day and found it to be helpful and mind opening.

Didn't cost me anything and was definitely worth a shot!

I actually did my BA and MA at Royal Holloway, and am now doing my Doctorate there. I also suffer from quite crippling mental health issues and have found the support to be fantastic. The Student Disabilities and Dyslexia dept are good at making sure you can access all your resources on bad days, but I found my department to be incredibly helpful and understanding. I found that being quite transparent about my struggles with my teachers helped a lot, because I could be honest when I was struggling. Pretending that everything is fine is pretty difficult when you're studying at this level.
Good luck x

Register with the Disabilities and Dyslexia Services as soon as possible - they will only help you if you have a medical diagnosis.

DO NOT register with the Health Centre at Royal Holloway. They are awful with mental health and I cannot stress enough that you should not register with them, ESPECIALLY for mental health.

I'm afraid to say that I agree. I registered for a GP surgery outside of the university.
