You do not have to declare your mental health difficulty to the University. However, by not declaring it you may limit the support that is available to you.
Many students can be concerned about declaring a mental health difficulty and worry this may be seen negatively or that they may be labelled in an unhelpful way. However, there is legislation to protect you from this sort of discrimination.
When a student declares that they have a mental health difficulty, the University has a responsibility to provide the best support and advice to the student.
For more information, please see our leaflet on "Support for Students Experiencing Mental Health Difficulties" or book an appointment with Wellbeing Services.
