Health and Wellbeing


We are aware that there may be occasions during your time at college when you need advice and guidance in relation to your health. We therefore work closely with a range of agencies to enable you to access as much support as possible.

 

All students have a personal tutor who they meet regularly for help and advice, and we also have a college counsellor who is able to support students with a range of concerns, such as, exam stress, anxiety or bereavement. If you would like an appointment, you can email the counsellor directly at counselling@sssfc.ac.uk or ask your tutor or Progress Coach to make an appointment for you.

We have a Sexual Health Nurse who is based in college every Monday morning to offer advice and help relating to sexual health and contraception, and we frequently host screening events in college to raise the profile of sexual health and wellbeing.

 

We also have regular visits from the Smoking Cessation Team, who can support students who would like to give up smoking.

Furthermore, we have strong links with other agencies to support students with specific needs, such as Sefton Young Carers and Barnardo’s.
