LJMU Connectors

The LJMU Connectors are on hand to provide peer support and make sure staff have access to the appropriate resources and services. The connectors are receiving ongoing training to spot early signs of mental ill health, listen to staff in confidence and without judgement, and to make sure people can access professional support.

The roles are in addition to our existing wellbeing services and are part of LJMU's commitment to providing an environment where people feel supported and are able to thrive, in line with the Health and Wellbeing Strategy

The connectors are based in academic and professional service teams across our campuses.

If you feel you need confidential advice or support around your wellbeing, please contact the connector in your area (you are welcome to approach a connector from a different area if you are more comfortable doing so, but please be assured that all contacts are completely confidential).
