Mental health support in the UK

Find out about what mental health support is available in the UK.

In the UK it is becoming more widely accepted to talk about mental health. This may be different from perceptions of mental health in your home country. But it is important to recognise changes to your mental wellbeing. At times you may experience feeling isolated, distressed, anxious or lonely.

Support at University

There is lots of different support available at the University:

Support from the SU

There is also support available from The Students’ Union:

  • the SU Advice & Support Centre is here to guide and support you with any problems you may have. Our professional advisors offer confidential, independent and non- judgemental information, advice and support.
  • Student Minds is a national charity that works to help students with mental health problems. At Student Minds Bath, we are a student-led group committed to supporting university students. Find out how to get involved in their workshops and courses.
  • contact Nightline from 8pm to 8am every night of term. Nightline is a listening service for students here at the University of Bath. We are student-run, confidential, and non-judgmental.
