Focus groups - where to get help

25 March 2013

The University is looking at alternative provision options to the current counselling provision - we need your views on the kind of support you think students need.

It is not unusual for students to experience difficulties that affect their studies and their experience of being at University. Common concerns can include feeling lonely and isolated, family and money worries, depression, anxiety, mental health issues and relationship problems.

We are interested in your views about the kind of help you would like to see at Westminster. Your views will help in shaping the service that is available to students at the university. The information you provide will be confidential.

The Students’ Union and the Counselling Service are organising Focus Groups to take place:

  • Wednesday 27 March, Cavendish Building, 115 New Cavendish Street, Room C2.08, 1pm to 3pm
  • Thursday 27 March, Chiltern Building, 35 Marylebone Road, Room C385, 1pm to 3pm

If you would like to take part please email [email protected]

£15 voucher will be given to all students who attend.
