One of your first ports of calls should be the medical centre on campus (or your own GP if registered elsewhere) for non-crisis intervention. They will be able to help with referring you on to further support and with any medication you need. All of the doctors at the medical centre are used to dealing with students and they see lots of people with a variety of mental health conditions every day. If you are not registered at the medical centre and would like to be, you can register online
Student Services - Wellbeing Team
UEA's Wellbeing Team offer support to students with diagnosed or emerging mental health conditions. The team provides an open door policy for current and intercalating students who require confidential support related to their wellbeing needs.
STS Mental Health Advisors are all experienced mental health professionals who will provide advice, support and guidance regarding any concerns you may have about your wellbeing and, where appropriate, provide brief therapy for a range of issues including: anxiety, depression, identity, sexuality, relationships, grief and loss, transitions, homesickness, abuse, concerns around eating and body image and challenges arising from study.
Students are now able to refer themselves to the Wellbeing Team, either by visiting, telephoning (01603 592761) or by completing the self-referral form and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org or using the process on this page, where you send the details of your situation to the Wellbeing team.
