Staying healthy physically, mentally, socially and financially is really important for you to thrive as a student. It’s important that you feel comfortable and able to speak up about any issues you’re experiencing before they get worse and impact your life and academic studies.
There are lots of support and wellbeing services both on campus and in the wider community that can help ensure you have the best possible time as a student at University.
For those who are not currently based in Leicester, The Mix offer information on the support available across the country. You can use their website to search for local, regional, and national organisations who can offer you support with anything concerning you.
The Advice Service can:
- Listen to you explain your situation and provide you with advice and support, identifying appropriate services for you and next steps you can take e.g. accessing further services.
- Liaise with other services and departments on your behalf where needed, with your consent.
- Review and provide further guidance on any documentation you need to collate for any procedures you need to follow, before you submit.
- Continue to provide advice on any outcomes you experience and anything else you’d like advice on during your student journey.
Take a look at our timetable which gives you an overview of when different support services and clinics run on campus throughout the year.
Do you need immediate help?
There is always somewhere where you can get support if you need it. If you are in urgent need of help, you can see recommendations of services available on the Out of Hours Support page.
If you’re not sure which services to access, please get in touch with the Advice Service and we’ll point you in the right direction. We have a team of friendly, helpful staff waiting to hear from you, so don’t be a stranger. Let’s talk – we’re here to help.
Please note: The Advice Service does not offer advice on sexual and physical violence, and other allegations of criminal action, however we can signpost to other services for support.
