Mental Health & Wellbeing – Counselling

Our dedicated student Counselling Service offers a free and confidential service to any student who needs it. Sessions are delivered both online and in person, giving students flexibility and choice about the way that they access the service.

Students can access up to six sessions an academic year. These 50-minute sessions offers a confidential, safe space for you to discuss and share whatever is going on in your life at the moment – a place for you to explore how you can improve some of the immediate challenges affecting your schoolwork or general wellbeing.

You can book a session by emailing counselling@metfilmschool.ac.uk.

Mental Health & Wellbeing – Togetherall

MetFilm School students can access Togetherall, our mental health and wellbeing portal. Togetherall is an anonymous community where members can reach out for support with their mental health. Access is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

You will be able to access trained professionals, self-assessments and resources, and a wide range of self-guided courses to complete at your own pace.

Your access to Togetherall becomes available during the Pre-Induction Programme, before you formally begin your studies at MetFilm School.

Disability and Neurodiversity Support at MetFilm School

MetFilm School wants all students to have access to their course and facilities. The Student Support Team provides confidential, specialist advice to help address any physical, study, or communication barriers students may find in the learning environment. Student Support work hand in hand with academic staff to support students with a wide range of disabilities, including:

  • neurodiversity and specific learning differences (such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD)
  • mental health difficulties (such as depression, bipolar disorder)
  • long-term medical conditions (such as HIV, cancer, multiple sclerosis)
  • hidden disabilities (such as diabetes, asthma, epilepsy)
  • sensory conditions (such as visual conditions, hearing conditions)
  • mobility or physical conditions (such as paralysis, arthritis)

You can register with the team during enrolment, or at any time during your studies. Alternatively, you can book an appointment with a member of the team to discuss your circumstances and support arrangements. We encourage students to disclose disability or support needs as early as possible, so the correct support can be set up to help you reach your full potential. If you have disclosed a disability or learning support need in your application, you will be asked for further information during the online enrolment process.

If you need adjustments for the induction and pre-induction periods, please let your admissions manager know, or contact the school via the email address below. Students can disclose or discuss a condition at any time during their study by contacting wellbeing@metfilmschool.ac.uk.
