Student Wellbeing



The Newcastle University Counselling team provide counselling for students who may be struggling with life concerns which cause unmanageable emotional or psychological distress.

Students are linked to the correct internal or external support system via an assessment process.

Internal support can take the form of online self-help, psychoeducational groups or one to one counselling, either face to face or over the telephone.

Students whose needs cannot be best met by the time-focused nature of counselling are linked to the most appropriate external services. This may be their GP, local or national NHS mental health services or specialist third sector agencies.

As with physical health, the University does not treat mental illness and students requiring treatment for such should contact their GP.
