Coventry establish Connections Matter network

Alongside Connections Matter, students (and staff) also have access to the already established Mental Health Zone/Portal. This platform provides individuals with the opportunity to request scheduled one to one interventions staffed by qualified mental health professionals (currently being done online) in addition to enabling access to a range of information related to health and well-being.
