About Student Access to Mental Health Support (SAMHS)

Find out more about the service and what to expect.


What is SAMHS?

SAMHS is the first point of contact for all of our students to explore a broad range of psychological support needs.

How do I register?

SAMHS remains open but we are closing our online registration for face-to-face triage appointments. 

In response to the developing situation in relation to novel coronavirus (COVID-19) SAMHS online registration is currently closed.

To ensure that we are able to continue supporting our students throughout the coming days and weeks our staff will be offering telephone or online support.

Accessing support

You can access support by sending an email to SAMHS@sheffield.ac.uk and should title your email “request for support”.  (You do not need to be registered with us)

Where possible, the email you send should include:

  • your telephone number
  • your student registration number
  • your University email address
  • your current address (where you are staying)
  • your GP Practice name and address

More details on the support we are currently offering can be found here
