Each College has a College Wellbeing Officer who is a staff member within the Counselling and Mental Health Service. College Wellbeing Officers offer low-level Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) based support, which is a structured therapy that focuses on the present rather than the past. It is useful for developing effective coping strategies to manage the symptoms of low-level mental health issues.
College Advisory Teams – College Wellbeing Officers also work closely with College Advisory Teams (CAT Teams) within the Colleges that have one. CAT Team staff are not part of the Counselling and Mental Health Service (with the exception of the College Wellbeing Officer), but are able to provide low-level support for non-mental health issues.
