Self-help and online resources
We want you to know we are always here to talk to.
You can also download TalkCampus, a free mental health and wellbeing app where you can talk with other students from around the world about mental health and wellbeing.
If you’d prefer, you can talk to a professional elsewhere. There are so many organisations out there, based locally in London, as well as across the UK, who offer help and advice on a range of issues.
Many of these organisations are available online, over email and webchat, as well as over the phone.
We’ve put together a list of these key organisations and the ways you can contact them below. If there’s any we’ve missed out and you think would be helpful to include for others, please do let us know.
