Mental Health Fund
There is increased awareness of how mental health issues facing students are having serious effects, coupled with an increased willingness to speak up and ask for help. Timely action is often vital, and we want our students to be able to access professional counselling services when the need is critical. Counselling costs in the region of £50 per session.
We sometimes see our PhD students go through acutely stressful periods due to financial concerns, if there is a funding gap between term ending and handing in their thesis. Being able to support them financially for a couple of months, can make a real difference.
