5 September 20183 October 20184 October 2018Hi there,

I request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000:

- Are there any dedicated mental health counselors on site at your establishment for students ? If so, how long is a waiting list?

- Please break down if there are any mental counselors for students struggling with a range of different mental health issues and how long the waiting list is for students wanting one.

- Please provide this data for the start of when this establishment opened.
Dear Sir/Madam,

Further to your request for information please see our response below:

- Are there any dedicated mental health counsellors on site at your establishment for students? If so, how long is the waiting list?

We have a team of five Counsellors, one of whom is full-time and is the Head of the Service; the other four are part-time. We do not have a waiting list to have a first appointment with a Counsellor and do not record how long a student waits to see a Counsellor frm when they first contact us. Students book an appointment typically 1-2 weeks ahead but sometimes appointments are available sooner than this, sometimes on the same day. We also have a team of four Student Wellbeing Advisers. Wellbeing Advisers can be seen on the day (drop-in) as well as by appointment.

- Please break down if there are any mental health counsellors for students struggling with a range of different mental health issues and how long the waiting list is for students wanting one.

See the answer above - as the Counsellors see students with a range of different issues.

- Please provide this data or the start of when this establishment opened.

It is not possible to provide client data for this period of time.

Staffordshire University
