Requesting an Appointment with a Mental Health Advisor

Our team of Mental Health Advisors are available throughout the year. An appointment to see a Mental Health Advisor can be requested in the following ways:

  • By coming to Student Support & Wellbeing reception in Foster Building 119
  • By telephone – 01772 894190
  • By email – mentalhealth@uclan.ac.uk 

Appointments are available between: 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. We aim to offer an appointment time that is best for you, and can offer telephone appointments if this is more convenient than face to face appointments. If you need an urgent appointment it is possible to arrange a duty appointment, which are bookable on the day. To book a duty appointment please ring 01772 894190, preferably in the morning on the day that you would like to attend.


In the event of you not being able to attend an appointment please cancel or re-schedule in advance, so that another student can be offered that appointment.
To cancel an appointment please let the Mental Health Advisor know by either calling in to Foster 119, ringing 01772 894190, or by email - mentalhealth@uclan.ac.uk
