Welcome > Support > Mental wellbeing
The Mental Health Team offers advice and support for students at Newcastle College with Mental Health and wellbeing issues. We are committed to ensuring your needs are addressed and met.
What type of support can we provide?
As individuals we all have worries and anxieties and sometimes those worries and anxieties as a student can increase and become more frequent than normal. Our aim as a team is to ensure we support and respond to your mental health, emotional and social needs whilst you are accessing your course. We will work with you to put the most appropriate support package together and ensure reasonable adjustments are available and in place whilst you are at college.

Working in partnership with MIND
The Mental Health team at Newcastle College took part in a project with MIND who are one of the biggest leading mental health charities in the UK, to encourage the disclosure of mental health from students. The campaign itself from MIND were keen to showcase the support from further education providers in the North East. The Mental Health team successfully obtained 170+ signatures from staff at Newcastle College.
By signing the ‘Wellbeing in Education Pledge’ shows Newcastle College staffs commitment to supporting students with mental health and wellbeing difficulties. Their dedication and willingness to signpost and offer support to students ensures Newcastle College students are comfortable and feel safe to disclose their difficulties in their learning environment.
