Better mental health and wellbeing starts with you, and NTU’s award winning resources and teams are here to help. We offer a range of online resources and on-campus activities to help you develop your skills in living happily, as well as specialist Wellbeing teams for when you need personalised support tailored to your needs.
HealthyNTU is our award-winning health promotion team. We provide advice, guidance and resources for health protection, sexual health, alcohol and drugs, and emotional health and wellbeing. We also run health and wellbeing campaigns throughout the year, as well as regular wellbeing events and activities on campus with the support of our Student Mental Health Champions.
Students are encouraged to browse through our online Wellbeing Toolkit, where you can find out more about wellbeing activities on campus and great online resources including SilverCloud, an online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) portal.
Our Mental Health Support Advisers offer support, advice, and guidance to students with emerging or diagnosed mental health difficulties. We offer one-to-one appointments to make sure your mental health is supported while you study at NTU.
Sometimes your personal circumstances can make attending university or meeting deadlines challenging. Student Support Advisers are based in academic schools and work closely with students, as well as academic and support staff to help with this.
We also offer dedicated support and a point of contact for students who ask for help relating to:
- care experience or care leavers
- pregnancy or early parenthood
- mature students
- gender identity

Counselling can help with a range of mental health and emotional issues. These include stress, anxiety and depression. It can offer a safe place to talk about any personal, emotional or psychological issues that you want to address.
We normally offer up to four counselling appointments. These can be in person, by phone, or by video. We also offer the option of counselling by email for those who prefer not to work in 'real time'. Some people find it easier to email about personal issues rather than talking about them directly.
Issues discussed in sessions are confidential. Read our counselling service confidentiality statement.

From viruses to vaccinations, your link with your local GP is essential. Registering with a local GP allows you to access help and support when you need to. We have Health Centres on campus that you can register with.
