Worried about someone?

If you’re worried about a friend and think they might be in emotional crisis it may be useful to consider the questions below:

  • Has there been any significant change in their appearance? For example weight loss / gain or decline in personal hygiene.
  • Has their mood changed significantly? Perhaps they are low, agitated, very quiet, very loud, moods up and down or anything else out of the ordinary.
  • Have others (house mates, other students or friends) expressed concern about them?
  • How long have they been like this? Everyone has bad days but it’s when days turn into weeks or months that there may be a problem.

Our Counselling and Wellbeing Service have also put together a range of self-help leaflets to offer you guidance to help you feel more prepared to offer support.

Don't forget, our Wellbeing Advisers are here to help if you are worried about a friend and want to talk.
