Mental Health and Wellbeing

Ask for help

If you’re going through any problems that may affect your studies and if you don’t know where to go for help, please contact your ResLife Advisor as soon as possible! The same goes for if you have concerns about anyone else. The ResLife team will be able to help you take steps to resolve your issues. If they are related to your studies, you should ask the Student Support Staff of your school for help.

If you do not wish to speak to us directly, you can book an appointment with the Counselling Services or ring Nightline (during term time only) on 0161 275 2983 or use their online chatroom. You can also contact the Samaritans if you need help or need to help someone.

Remember: everything you share with us, the Counselling Services or with any other service is strictly confidential! So, please, make sure you get the help you need - we’re here for you!
