Support for students

The Student Wellbeing Team will close at 12:30 on Friday 22 December, reopening on Tuesday 2 January 2017.

If you are a student concerned about your mental health or wellbeing and feel you need to speak to someone during the Christmas break, we advise you to make an appointment with your GP or contact NHS 111. If you are having thoughts of self-harm or suicide, you should access help immediately.

  • Call 111 (free-phone, open 24 hours a day) - a trained adviser will ask you a series of questions and immediately direct you to the best service to support your needs.
  • Call the Connect helpline on 0808 800 1212 (free-phone) which gives emotional support and information to people in Leeds every night of the year (6pm-2am).
  • Talk to the Samaritans on 116 123 (free-phone, open 24 hours a day) if you need someone to listen at any time of the day or night.
  • Call Leeds Crisis Assessment Service (CAS) on 0300 300 1485.  Call to speak to a highly trained clinician who will ask a series of questions to assess your needs. Leeds CAS is a 24-hour assessment service for people 18 years and over.

Information on mental health services in Leeds is provided by Mindwell

The Leeds Crisis Card also has useful information on various sources of support

You might also find it useful to look at information, resources and guidance on our self- help page http://www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/studenthub/self-help

On returning to work in January, the Student Wellbeing team will respond to any student enquiries that have come into the service over the Christmas break.
