You said, We did- The Counselling service

the loop

We’ve had a lot of feedback from students via The Loop regarding the Counselling services here at Sussex, so we decided to feed this back and got a response from Kath Hegarty, Acting Head of Sussex University Counselling Services that we can now relay back to you!

 

Kath says that the Counselling Services are aware that there may be many students who are struggling to get through the Counselling services doors which is very worrying, but as a result of this, they are working to place students with extra bank staff. Extra bank staff have been employed to try to meet the waiting list, and the Counselling Services are looking to employ more bank staff to help with this too.

 

To help reduce students waiting times, filling out an availability form is best. The more availability a student is able to put on the form, the more likely Counselling Services will be able to match them to an appointment slot more quickly.

 

Feedback like this in The Loop helps to highlight and influence changes at Sussex, so keep submitting feedback!
