Welcome

At Coventry University we recognise how difficult it can sometimes be for staff/post graduate research students* to succeed whilst also managing everyday life. 

We want to build a supportive culture around mental health and well-being and encourage you to have the confidence to talk to us about your concerns.

We take your mental health and well-being seriously and are working towards building a supportive culture and whole University approach.

If you are struggling emotionally and wish to seek advice on how to look after your mental health and well-being you can request a confidential appointment with a Coventry University Mental Health Coordinator by filling in the form below.

Confidentiality statement

We respect your privacy. Any information you disclose is confidential between you and the University Group. Ordinarily, we do not pass on personal information about you to any third party. However, there are certain exceptions:

  • Where you give us express consent to disclose information (for example, if you would like an advisor’s help in liaising with third parties).  
  • Where, in order to support you, we need to contact your GP or involve other welfare services.  It is our practice to discuss any such contact with you in advance where appropriate.
  • Where the law requires us to disclose information.
  • Where you give us information that leads us to believe that you are, or someone else is, at serious and/or imminent risk of harm, then we may disclose information to minimise this risk. 

Note: If you are in a mental health crisis - call 999. If you are thinking of seriously harming yourself, or are having suicidal thoughts, please speak to your doctor immediately or ring the NHS helpline (111) or call the Samaritans (116 123) or go to your local Walk-In Centre.

You will be able to download a comprehensive list of resources at the end of this form.
