Our service
Sit mental health service offer short-term psychotherapy treatment for students with mild mental health problems. Here you’ll meet a highly qualified and skilled team consisting of clinical sociologists, psychiatric nurses, and psychologist specialists.

Your first meeting with us is a mapping consultation. During this appointment we’ll consider what the right treatment for you will be. Some might be recommended treatment with one of our therapists, while others might be recommended treatment with another health service or agency. 

How can you help me?

It’s perfectly normal to go through periods with a fluctuating mood. It’s when the negative thoughts and problems you experience persists and begin to affect your quality of life, that you need to seek help.

Our therapists meet students every day and have long experience treating students with mild mental health problems. There are a number of reasons why students seek help from us, but some of the most common challenges students face are draining thoughts, anxiety, insomnia, grief, loneliness, self-esteem and relations to other people.

Together with the therapist, you’ll decide what the goal of the treatment should be and what challenges you want to work on during the treatment.

The mapping consultation
