Disability and Mental Health Service

Our role is to enable students who may need additional support, to fully participate in Newman life and also to promote awareness of inclusive practice throughout the University. You may not regard yourself as disabled, but if you have any on-going mental or physical health issues, which impact on your study, are D/deaf or hard of hearing, blind or have visual loss, or have a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, or ADHD, which impacts on your ability to study, then our service is for you.
