The Student Welfare and Education Officer provides information to students about a range of concerns including; mental well-being, crisis pregnancy, sexual health awareness, suicide intervention and non-academic issues. Our dedicated officer can also provide our students with information about a number of additional support services both locally and nationally and help connect students to these organisations, should they need the support.
Please Talk is a national mental health awareness campaign, which urges students to understand that talking is a sign of strength, not of weakness. And that if they experience problems while at college, there are people they can talk to. At the centre of the campaign is the PLEASE TALK website which provides a list of support services that are available to students at their college or university. DBS has a page on the PLEASE TALK website, which lists the support services available to our students.
