Need Urgent Help or Support?

If you are feeling like hurting yourself or suicidal we strongly recommend you contact a doctor RIGHT AWAY for advice and to tell them how you are feeling.

If you don't think you can stay safe, please go to the nearest hospital accident and emergency room. If none of these options are available, please contact a family member or a trusted friend, so that you won't be alone right now. If your concerns are less urgent and you would find it helpful to talk confidentially about your feelings you can contact the Samaritans on 116 123, you can also call VOICE, a listening service run by students during term


If you aren't already you should register with the Student Health Centre on the Streatham Campus . If you are on the St Lukes Campus then you should register with the Heavitree Practice. The GPs at the Student Health Centre can see any student in an emergency even if they are not registered. You can also contact Reed Mews Wellbeing Centre for help and support. If you are in need of urgent help out of hours then you should call NHS 111. You can also go to the Accident and Emergency Department of the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital (Switchboard 01392 411611) where you will be assessed and treated by the relevant health team.
