Student Update: Wellbeing support for students

Our thoughts are with students who are personally affected and whose families that have been impacted by the deeply concerning situation in Afghanistan.

 
We hope that all members of our community remain safe, and we are doing everything we can to support students based in the country and our Afghan students here in the UK during these highly troubling times. As a University, we have a small community of students from Afghanistan or have direct links to the country, but recognise others in our wider University community may also feel affected.

If you are affected, and it would help to speak to someone, you may wish to access one of the University's support services.

Support for students

Your Faculty Student Services should be the first point of call to access support and advice, and the easiest way to contact them is by the e:Vision helpdesk.   

All students can access online mental health and wellbeing support 24/7 through Togetherall – an online community monitored by trained professionals. If you need advice or extra help, please check our self-help resources webpage or complete the mental health and wellbeing support registration form.     

Find out more about the student support services available to you here: www.wlv.ac.uk/support.

Multi-faith Chaplaincy

While the Chaplaincy building and prayer facilities on campus are currently closed due to Covid-19, the Chaplains are still here for you. The Multi-faith Chaplaincy team offers private and confidential conversations and support online and over the phone.

If you need to speak with a person of a faith we don't have on the team, we have community links with members of many faiths and religions.

Government crisis line

The UK Government has now launched a crisis line for British and non-British nationals in Afghanistan. If you are a British national or family member of a British national in Afghanistan, you can call +44 (0)19 0851 6666 and select 'Consular services for British nationals'. This phone number is monitored 24/7 by consular officers.
