At GKSU we are committed to supporting you in your time at University. Mental health support and advice is so important to a happy, healthy life at Uni and beyond.

Below are some useful links if you, or someone you know, needs to talk to someone to find out more about mental health support.

If you feel that you're at crisis point, or you know someone else is, then contact your campus Student Centre or the Students' Union Advice Service. It could be the first step in taking back control of your health or someone else's. If you feel there's no one else to talk to, contact the Samaritans. Available to provide emotional support to anyone, 24 hours a day, all year round. Sometimes we all need someone to just listen. See www.samaritans.org, or phone 116 123.

During the pandemic, everyone's mental health has been challenged.  This great ebook "How to stay calm in a global pandemic" offers some really practical hints and tips.
