Student health & wellbeing

Your wellbeing matters. We are a community that wants all its members to be able to thrive. Everyone who is part of the Catz community can access a wide range of resources and support, including the Health and Wellbeing team, tutors, porters and more.

The Health and Wellbeing team

The Health and Wellbeing Team are a key part of this, and are available to meet with any member of the community to talk about your wellbeing and help you to access the right support at the right time. 

Here are the best ways to get in touch: 

Emailing the whole team on will ensure that we can reply to you as soon as possible.

You can use the online system to book an appointment with Ryan, Mary or Ally.
Please note that Mary and Ryan are located in E, on the little corridor opposite the JCR.   
Signage will be updated shortly, but in the mean time follow the signs to 'community heath practitioner'.
Ally is still in A4, and if you would like to see Ally, but find the stairs difficult, she will be happy to find a more accessible place to meet.

You can also contact us individually by email:

You can also contact the Porters' Lodge (01223 338300) for advice, and to arrange for a member of the health and wellbeing team or your tutor to make contact.

Support in a crisis 

If you are experiencing a mental health crisis and are not sure you can keep yourself safe, please call 999. 
The porters can provide immediate support for you, and help you access further support, whether that is via the tutorial system, the health and wellbeing team, or the NHS.
For urgent, non-emergency mental health advice via the NHS, you can call NHS111 (option 2) if you are in Cambs/Peterborough, or the equivalent for your local area if you are not in Cambridge.

What support is available?

There is a lot of support available within College and University, through the NHS, and through charitable organisations. You can find out more about all of these through the links below - you can refer yourself to some sources of support, while for others your tutor or the health and wellbeing team can help you access them.  We would always encourage you to talk to the team or to your tutor; we can help you think through what's going on for you and what sort of support might be most helpful.
