Feeling Overwhelmed?

Feeling overwhelmed?

We receive many enquiries from students in heightened states of anxiety, who have already been referred for counselling (often from their GP) then basically told to sit on a waiting list for anything up to 3 months.

There is NO NEED to have to wait that long. There should be a service in most areas that they can self-refer to, with a much shorter waiting time -

Whether these are NHS, charity or private this is a useful website for finding self-referral services by postcode https://www.nhs.uk/service-search
