Students are facing increased pressure in today's learning environment. 

Increased stress levels also lead to increased mental health problems, in what is being described as a UK 'student mental health crisis' by Anna Macaskill (

We would like to help students to be able to cope better with the pressure and stress they face at school and university. We have compiled a list of online resources below to help with stress and mental health issues.


Option 1:

Please use the following helpful resources below for stress management, depression, including study pressures. The first part are private, fully-confidential services done over the phone, online and some with an app, and where you can have full support and 24-hour access to help. Most are free. Some can be immediate, such as the Samaritans, others possibly require you to go through an NHS application first.

Option 2:

In the second part, we also list various social media websites such as Facebook, Forum, Blog or Twitter forums where you can speak to others in a similar situation, discussing your opinions or sharing your experiences.


Option 1:

Resources for immediate help, private counselling, some via phone, internet or app.
