Your mental health is as important as your physical health so it is important to make sure you take the time to look after it.
The University is encouraging all students to try out the NHS’s Five Steps to Mental Wellbeing. Keep an eye on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts as well as our Student News pages for ideas around how to get involved over the next few weeks and months.
If at any time during your studies you feel you might benefit from some extra support, we are here to help.
We offer a Wellbeing Drop-in between 11am-3pm every weekday in the Alsop Building for practical and pastoral support in a confidential space. You don’t need to book – simply come along to the Student Welfare Advice and Guidance Information Point on the ground floor of the Alsop Building (on University Square).
If you or a friend is in danger, you will need to call the appropriate emergency service by calling 999.
For 24-hour help, please call The Samaritans who offer a 24-hour helpline (116 123). You can also find support via the Students Against Depression website. Liverpool Light is a mental health café that provides a welcoming and safe space for people experiencing mental health related crisis. The service is run by trained mental health support staff and operates from 6pm to 12pm, seven days a week, offering an alternative to the use of A&E for people at times of crisis or in need of targeted social support out of hours.
If you need non-academic, non-emergency support, our Student Services team offer a range of services. The wellbeing drop-in sessions outlined above are a good place to start but there are lots of services available which you may find useful.
