LOOK AFTER YOUR MATE GUIDE

Student Minds have produced a campaign to give students the knowledge to understand a little about what their friend or flatmate is going through, the skills to support their friend to the best of their ability and the confidence in your ability to talk about the difficult things and support their friend through the difficult times.

Our website provides more information about specific mental health difficulties, and has links to where students can get further support - VISIT WEBSITE
 
As part of the ‘Look After Your Mate’ campaign, we produced a Guide for Friends. Take a look at the guide for tips on starting a conversation with a friend, keeping the conversation going, understanding their friend’s diagnosis and much more! Take a look at the guide online, or download a copy of the guide below.

NIGHTLINE

NIGHTLINE

We are open between 6pm and 8am every night of term.

London Nightline is a confidential and anonymous listening and practical information service run by students for students, of the University of London and beyond. Students can talk to us about anything – big or small – in complete confidence. We won’t judge you or tell them how to run their life: we’ll simply listen to whatever is on their mind. All our volunteers are students themselves, who have undergone extensive training and who understand that university life isn’t always plain sailing. Nightline is able to provide crucial out-of-hours peer support via phone, live chat, email, text and Skype services. 

  • Phone: If you want to talk to one of our volunteers over the phone, you can call the number below and chat with no time pressure. Call (+44) 207 631 0101
  • Text: We reply within 10 minutes. You can come back to the conversation, hours or even days later. Whatever suits you best. Text us: 07717 989 900
  • Email: Sometimes it’s nice to write things out on your own time and send it to someone, so you can also contact Nightline via email listening@nightline.org.uk
  • Skype Call: If you have Skype downloaded, you can add us as a contact and call us free of charge from wherever you’re based in the world.
