Health And Wellbeing

 
 

 

Register for a GP / Dentist / Optician

 

Whether you are living in Cardiff Met Campus halls/Private halls or a house in the surrounding area, you will need to register with a GP/Dentist and Optician as soon as you arrive or indeed beforehand if you know your address. As GP’s have catchment areas, you will need to find a local GP surgery and contact them about registering with them. This useful list will locate your nearest GP/Dentist and Optician.

Reading Well Scheme and Student Mental Health App

 

At Cardiff Met we empower students to combat their own Wellbeing and Mental Health head on. We believe that self-help is useful to understanding and managing your own mental health and research suggests that reading is a useful method. Use this link here for books that are prescribed by the NHS; these can be accessed as e-books as well for those who dislike pulling out books!

Cardiff Met Chaplaincy

 

The Chaplaincy Service is a unique and vibrant part of Cardiff Met providing a welcoming, safe and confidential environment for students of all faiths and none. 

We offer bereavement support and general pastoral care for students who are feeling isolated or just need someone to talk to.  We offer culturally sensitive support for ethnic minority students and support for students who may suffer racial harassment/racism or hate incidents. We also offer additional support to refugee and asylum seeker students. 

We have three multi-faith prayer spaces across our campuses and can assist you in finding faith communities in your local area. The chaplaincy is also a space to explore spirituality, faith and/or philosophy. We also run interfaith events in partnership with the Student Union as well as organising faith festival celebrations.  

We are a listening ear for anyone who needs us. If you would like to have a chat then you can contact us on

Prayer Rooms

 

The new prayer room in Cyncoed is B009. The new ablution room is B0T1 which is further down the same corridor.

 

Sexual Health

 

The NHS provides clinics at Cardiff Royal Infirmary (CRI) and in other locations across Cardiff. All clinics are confidential.

The CRI provides the most comprehensive Sexual Health service and would be the recommended point of contact for most issues.

See this website for more in-depth information regarding the available services Cardiff has to offer.

 

Disability and Wellbeing Service

 

Student Services and Employability have a Wellbeing service that offers support in the shape of 1:1 wellbeing appointment, counselling sessions and access to resources around the clock.

Cardiff Met is committed to removing the stigma around mental health and aim to create an environment where everyone can thrive. If you have a disability or any additional needs, specialist advisors will work with you to develop a support package that addresses the challenges that you may encounter during your studies.

Student Services and Employability will help to identify your support needs and any reasonable adjustments you may require as well as providing you with access to further resources.

To access support simply complete the Disability, Wellbeing and Counselling support form on MetHub.
