Mental health services
At student health we have a variety of services available to support students who are experiencing mental health problems. We work closely with a range of services and can help direct you to the help and support you need.
Services available at the Students’ Health Service:
Routine appointments if you are worried about your mental health or that of a friend.
Same day appointments if it is an urgent issue. We are unique in that we offer same day, 20 minute mental health appointments. These are to support students with new or worsening mental health. You will be seen by the school psychologist. These are not for reviews or for a routine review of ongoing mental health problems.
We recommend any student who is experiencing mental health issues to register with the Student Counselling Service.
Getting your medication from us
If, when you register with us, you are taking regular medication, please ensure you contact us in plenty of time in order to request a repeat prescription. Sometimes we may be able to issue an ongoing supply without an appointment providing we have access to all relevant medication information and up to date review details from your last physician. You will be offered a school appointed doctor, or nurse if you require a review from us, so please ensure you have allowed sufficient time for this to be arranged.
All repeat prescriptions are subject to a regular review and the frequency of this will vary depending on the medication. Please note that not all medications can be set up as a repeat prescription as some will require a review appointment each time.
If you are from overseas, you will need to book an appointment to discuss ongoing medication requirements. Some medications are not available on the island or will require school doctor to prescribe them.
