Wellbeing Wednesday – Summer Support

Spotlight on… Summer Support

Over the summer students can still receive support for health and wellbeing. The Wellbeing Service continues to operate as usual over the summer. The only part of the service that does not run out of term time is the evening counselling clinic.

The Student Health and Wellbeing Service provide a number of online options which are available 24/7. These include:

  • Talk Campus (mental health and peer support)
  • Silvercloud (online CBT programmes)
  • iNCLude app (ideas and support to maintain good wellbeing)

In addition, students needing support over the summer break are invited to email pastoral.support@ncl.ac.uk.

The wellbeing therapy workshops will be still running so you keep checking the events page and the workshop page to find events, as well as general health /wellbeing tips.
