Support for LJMU staff during exam season



As the exam period gets underway, we understand it can be a stressful time for students but also for our staff, so we’re reminding everyone of the free 24/7 support services available at LJMU

Togetherall is an award-winning online mental health and wellbeing service designed to help people get support, take control and feel better.

Its anonymous peer-support community provides a safe space to share experiences with people that could be experiencing the same as you, a place to feel understood, share advice and offload with health care professionals at hand for support 24/7.

Both staff and students can register online and have free access whenever they like to resources and courses such as managing stress and worry.  Although signing up with an academic email address, all interactions are anonymous and Togetherall will only seek identifying information from a member when they are concerned about the member’s safety. 

There are lots of resources available for students who may be feeling the assessment pressure, and colleagues may wish to direct students to this resource, as well as potentially using it themselves.

Staff can also use the Vivup Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) service to speak to a trained counsellor 24/7, 365 days a year. To access the support line, call 0330 380 0658 and mention you are LJMU staff or visit the website.

Top 3 tips coming into study and exam periods

  • Share your challenges, you are not alone – colleagues can be experiencing the same challenges as you. Do not be afraid to reach out for support and uplift yourself by supporting others 
  • Remember your own self-care routines at this time – you may feel very emotionally invested in supporting your students and need time to process and reflect
  • Celebrate achievements, both for you and your students - feel proud of all that you have achieved
  • Focus on what you can control – get support, take control, feel better
