These forms capture basic information about you, the issues you are struggling with, and the support you are looking for. This includes a questionnaire that helps us gauge the impact your issues are having on your wellbeing.

Once we receive your completed form, we will contact you with an appointment within 2 working days. 

If you need support completing this form, please call 01274 235 750 and a member of the MyBradford Team will help you. 

If you require a more immediate response, please email mhadvice@bradford.ac.uk or call 01275 235 750 and your details will be forwarded to a member of the Counselling and Mental Health Service.   

If you are in a crisis situation, please visit our Help in a Crisis page

The Service provides a safe space where feelings are validated & the opportunities are given to look at issues from different perspectives in order to find resolution. I found the Service very supportive & helpful.

Eligibility

Our Mental Health Advisers can support all students of the University of Bradford who have a diagnosed mental health condition (subject to appropriate medical evidence).

If you do not have a diagnosis, are worried about your mental health, or have noticed changes in your mental health there is also support we can offer.
