This page contains a list signposts to places for therapy and counselling, books, articles, podcasts and other resources to support the wellbeing of people going through racial trauma.

Therapy and counselling are only one method of supporting your mental wellbeing - if this is the support you choose, please ask and conduct research into the type of therapy or counselling you think would benefit you.

If you have a mental health condition, you may be able to access Disabled Students Allowance, that can help you access one-to-one support and help cover disability-related costs.

If you are struggling to complete your studies, you may be able to apply for Extenuating Circumstances - please speak to your department or the Union advice service to help you through the process.
