Information for staff

If you would like to refer a student for counselling support, please discuss this with the student and suggest they make contact via email or telephone.

As a member of university staff you may find yourself in the position where you feel the need, or are requested, to give student assistance. It is important that you do so within the boundaries of what you feel comfortable doing.

The Positive Living team in Glasgow has collaborated with university colleagues to produce a brief guide to help you to identify and support students in distress, along with two quick reference flowcharts. These have been adapted for use at GCU London.

Requests for paper copies of the guide and flowcharts should be emailed to along with any other comments or suggestions.
