If you are having personal difficulties that are likely to affect your studies, then you are strongly encouraged to discuss these with your personal tutor. How much you choose to tell them is up to you. Your personal tutor will treat these discussions as confidential unless they feel that there is a risk to you or others, or if they need to share information with another service in order to access further support for you.
It is especially important that you consider discussing difficulties that are affecting your studies if you have an assessment coming up so that you understand how to apply for mitigating circumstances, if necessary.
