External support

In addition to the wide range of services offered by UCL, further support is available from external organisations.

Support during lockdown

We recognise students may be facing additional mental health challenges due to the disruption and uncertainty caused by coronavirus (COVID-19). Full support remains available from UCL in the form of same-day appointments with our DMHW (Disability, Mental Health and Wellbeing) team, counselling with SPCS (Student Psychological and Counselling Services) and self-help resources across our Student Support and Wellbeing site.

We are running wellbeing events open to all students in partnership with Students' Union UCL. We also have dedicated self-isolation guidance and support for students who are self-isolating.

To make an appointment with our advisers or for any further enquiries you have or support you may need, access askUCL and a member of our team will get in contact with you.

Student Space is an online wellbeing space full of expert information and advice to help you through the challenges of coronavirus. They also provide free and confidential wellbeing support via telephone, email and webchat.

Students struggling with their mental health can also access support via the NHS and online resources from Public Health England, along with support from mental health charity Mind. Further sources of information and support are Every Mind Matters, and Young Minds for young people.
