Book an appointment 

You will need to complete our referral form in MySIS to book an appointment for mental health advice. Click the Contact us box below to complete the form and find out more information about appointments.  

Appointments are available online on MS Teams and in-person on the Mile End Campus. 

We would also recommend making an appointment with your GP if you are feeling psychologically unwell, so that your GP can support you and, if necessary, assist with specialist referral within the NHS.  

If you’re concerned about how to get referred to specialist services, the mental health adviser can help with this during your appointment. 


If you need to cancel a session for any reason, please let us have more than 24 hours’ notice. If you miss a session due to illness or extenuating circumstances, please let us know so we can reschedule.
