Having a tough time and need to speak to someone?
Student Development and Well-being provide a daily drop-in service, offering brief consultation sessions of around 15-20 minutes. The drop-ins are for students wishing to access counselling, mental health, or learning/disability support, including those who need to speak to a mental well-being practitioner urgently. These can be face-to-face, via Zoom video call or telephone.
The well-being drop-in sessions take place from 12 - 2pm, Monday to Friday (during term-time). To access a drop-in, contact Student Development and Well-being on 0151 291 3427 or firstname.lastname@example.org on the morning of the day you wish to attend and a member of the team will arrange things for you.
*Please note that a limited number of drop-in sessions are available each day and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Worried about a fellow student?
The challenges of university life can sometimes affect students’ feelings of mental well-being. If you notice any changes in a friend or fellow student’s manner, behaviour, or appearance that gives you cause for concern, contact Student Development and Well-being. We can offer them (and you if you need it) the assistance and support that will help.
