The University of Plymouth LGBT+ Wellbeing Group is a chance for all LGBT+ students, or those with initial questions about sexuality or gender identity to gather online via Zoom and address some of the specific issues that are impacting on their wellbeing and to feel heard. The group will run every week at the same time and will be facilitated by LGBT+ identifying members of staff and facilitators.

 

"The LGBT+ Wellbeing Group is designed for confidential and safe discussions about personal issues with the University's mental health advisors that you, as a LGBT+ student, might be facing in these unprecedented times. As LGBT+ Officer at UoP, you can also come to me to discuss various issues that you face, this could be about campaigns and or other personal issues that you wish to address, best way to book an appointment is via email and a zoom meeting can be arranged."

 

- Samuel Pritchard, LGBT+ Officer


The group aims to provide a safe space for students to discuss some of their problems and share ways of coping during ever-changing uncertain times. This will be a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere and topics raised by the group will be sensitively held by the group. We ask for confidentiality in the group, you don’t have to be ‘out’ or claim an identity to attend. The group will last 60 minutes and run at the same time every week.

Upon registering you will receive a Zoom link via email so that you're able to attend the group.
