Mental Health Support in Southampton

Mental Health support across the city is changing, and you get the chance to have your say. Hear about the changes and how students will be affected.

The Southampton Integrated Commissioning Unit is a joint team for the Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group and Southampton City Council – responsible for identifying which services the people of Southampton want and need, then commissioning (planning, buying and checking) these services on their behalf. They have put together a series of proposals for the future of mental health support in Southampton and are now asking people in Southampton what they think of them – find out more here.

At Union Council in March we had a discussion about it, but decided that we would like to find out more about the potential impacts on students. Amanda Luker (Commissioner) and Katy Bartolomeo (Senior Commissioner, Mental Health & Substance Misuse) will be holding a short session on Thursday 28 April, 11.00 – 12.00 for you to find out more and ask any questions you have.

Thursday 28 April, 11.00 to 12.00

Meeting Room 1, Building 42 – Highfield Campus

It’s a brilliant chance for you to have your voice heard on such an important topic – your feedback will be used to shape how the proposals are put into place. If you can’t make it then make sure to share your views online.

What support is out there for me?

There’s a lot of help out there from the Students’ Union, the University and other organisations – you should never feel like there’s no one for you to talk to. Find out more at
