Disability & Wellbeing Service – Daily Drop-In (term-time only)
The Disability and Wellbeing Service will be running a daily weekday drop-in during term-time for brief enquiries. Students will be seen on a first come, first served basis.
When: Monday to Friday, 11.00am to 12.00pm
Where: Pethick-Lawrence House (PEL), 4.02A
During the drop-in we can help with:
- The status of Central Exam Adjustment (CEA) application
- Check and confirm your medical evidence is sufficient
- Explain or stamp Disability Students’ Allowance forms
- Booking an appointment with a Disability or Mental Health Adviser.
Please note: we cannot create “My Adjustments” during drop-ins as students need to book a full appointment with a Disability or Mental Health Adviser.
At your Wellbeing Appointment you’ll meet with a Wellbeing Adviser to talk about your current situation. During this 30-minute appointment we will discuss what would be most useful to you, including:
- Workshops & groups: Develop new skills and coping techniques to allow you to get the most from your academic studies and enjoy your LSE experience.
- Self- care strategies: Identify practical strategies for looking after your mental health and wellbeing. These could include reflective journalling, goal setting, breathing techniques & mindfulness.
- Referral to LSE Student Counselling Service: Talk in confidence with a trained professional about anything in your life which is impacting your psychological wellbeing and daily life. Our counsellors work with you to reflect on whatever you are finding difficult and to identify healthier strategies to manage. Find out more about the Student Counselling Service.
