Medical Evidence

In order to access support from the mental health team, you’ll need to provide recent medical evidence from a relevant professional (eg GP, psychiatrist or psychologist) of your mental health disability, including, for example:

  • a diagnosis
  • whether the condition is long-term (usually lasting over a year or likely to do so)
  • whether the condition is fluctuating – if so, what the triggers are and when it’s at its worst (eg stress at exam time/deadlines)
  • the effect the mental health condition has upon learning/attendance at university
  • the impact, if any, on day-to-day activities
