What is PASS?

The Peer Advocacy Service for Students (PASS) is a mental well-being service run and designed by students. We’re here to help with a whole range of problems students might face at university, that can get them down. We specialise in supporting students through mental illness, but it doesn’t have to be mental illness they see us about. If it relates to mental well-being, then we’re happy to help. 


We offer support in 3 main ways:

We can make suggestions about who can help with the problem – great if the student is not sure who can help, or they've been turned away from somewhere else.
We can find reliable information about almost anything – so students can make informed decisions about their mental health without having to sift through Google.
We can provide moral support – for those times when they don’t want to go alone, but haven’t got anyone they can go with.

We’re all about giving options, not making someone choose one.
